SENIA Bali May 2 Event

The May 2 workshop and networking event was a wonderful success! Thank you to all who attended and helped to make this such a rich environment of learning and sharing. The workshops included topics such as: Red Flags and What to Do, Establishing a Common Language, and Teacher Well-being. 

Ibu Wirma Yani, teacher at Green School Bali, gave this talk in Bahasa Indonesia for local teachers to inspire methods/strategies to include children with diverse needs in the classroom.

Hannah Horne, speech therapist at ProEducation, lead an activity for all teachers to share their favourite tips on what works for them in the classroom. It was interesting to hear the range of information from the different counsellors and support staff, both international and local! If you have any tips that have been effective for you and you’d like to share, in english or bahasa, please email us and we will include them in our future posting of a collection of ‘favourite tips from Bali teachers’.

 

Stay tuned for our next event coming soon at the Green School!

Professional Development Workshop – ‘The Pathways of Learning’

Professional Development Workshop – ‘The Pathways of Learning’

Last week Green School, Bali welcomed professionals from across island to a free workshop facilitated by a special education colleague from Singapore, Michael Vericker. The workshop was hosted by a Green School Grade 12 student, Wells Kochey. Wells experienced her own academic challenges at school and was encouraged to invite Michael, her former teacher, to share his expertise with teachers and therapists at Green School and beyond. The event was heavily subscribed and sadly we could not accommodate all colleagues who expressed an interest but hope to host similar events in the future.

 

Thank you Wells for recognising the need and making this your end of school project. We hope many students on Bali will now benefit from this shared understanding of learning differences.

 

Lokakarya Pengembangan Profesional – ‘Jalur Pembelajaran’

Pekan lalu Green School, Bali menyambut para profesional dari seluruh Bali ke lokakarya gratis yang difasilitasi oleh seorang rekan pendidik anak berkebutuhan khusus dari Singapura, Michael Vericker. Lokakarya ini dipandu oleh siswa Green School Kelas 12, Wells Kochey. Wells mengalami tantangan akademis di sekolahnya dan terdorong untuk mengundang Michael, mantan gurunya, untuk berbagi keahliannya dengan para guru dan terapis di Green School dan sekolah lainnya. Acara ini banyak mendapat tanggapan positif dan sayangnya kami tidak bisa mengakomodasi semua kolega yang tertarik. Namun, kami tetap berharap untuk menjadi tuan rumah untuk acara serupa selanjutnya.

 

Terima kasih Wells karena telah mengenali kebutuhan pendidik dan menjadikan ini sebagai proyek akhir sekolah Anda. Kami berharap banyak siswa di Bali sekarang akan mendapat manfaat dari pemahaman bersama tentang perbedaan pembelajaran ini.

 

-Alison Ford
