The children attending the Senggigi centre are currently taking their first steps in primary education. The opportunity to start learning English from such an early age will prove to be invaluable for them going forward. Much like nurseries in any other country, the teaching style is informal. This is because the children will prefer to play with you rather than being “taught” by you. However, by making them excited to come to school and teaching them some very basic phrases, such as simple greetings, you may well have planted the seed for a habit of continuous learning. The children will be delighted to see you and are sure to be exceptionally welcoming, partly because of the genuine and natural friendliness of Lombok natives.
The working hours are subject to change, depending on climate conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
This program will not run during the school holidays (June, July, August and December) and other bank holidays. Alternative activities may include conservation and restoration tasks and working on a school camp.
Accommodation: Volunteers will stay in our houses in Senggigi.
