Exchange program

Shayal Devi
Saturday, June 14, 2014

AUSTRALIAN John Kitchener loves many things about Fiji but the one thing he really looks forward to is teaching young Fijian schoolchildren.

The 26-year-old is part of a student teacher exchange program facilitated by the Ministry of Education and Australia's University of Wollongong. Mr Kitchener, with 14 others, would be based at eight schools in Lautoka for the next three weeks.

"I study teaching in Australia but I am doing a shorter course because I've already completed a bachelor's degree in public health but I really enjoy teaching and learning," he said.

Divisional education officer Western Lorima Voravora said the partnership between the Education Ministry and University of Wollongong had been in place for the past 25 years.
