Australia to choose first Teacher of Year among teachers of Russian schools



Australia’s first Teacher of the Year competition is to take place this summer. It is organized by the Australian Council of Education created this year by active leaders and teachers of Russian schools in the country. The purpose of the pedagogical council is to unite Russian schools in Australia for the exchange of experience and large-scale joint events, the Edinenie newspaper reports.

Forty-five Russian schools are currently working in Australia. Educational institutions were created in different years and have various students. In some schools, only the Russian language and literature are taught, others include other subjects in the curriculum. Some schools introduce specialized methods of teaching bilingual children.

According to Lyudmila Klopova, a methodologist from Russian Romashka school from the city of Gold Coast, the idea of ​​creating the council of education came from the desire of leaders and teachers of Russian schools to share their accumulated experience and conduct joint events. It exists only a few months, but the association already created a plan for large-scale events.

The most significant of them will be the first Teacher of the Year competition. The organizing committee is waiting for applications from Russian schools until August 1, the winners will be announced before the end of 2019.

Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
