WSSC supports Indonesian Teachers in Professional Learning Program
This week, Wodonga Senior Secondary College has hosted two teachers from Indonesia, as they participate in a Professional Development Program, Australian Awards in Indonesia. The program, funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Australian Education Foundation, allows education professionals and future leaders from Indonesian, to visit Victoria to access and share high-quality professional development opportunities.
During their four-day visit to Wodonga, Mr. Samsul Hudah and Mr. Budi Setiyarso, have experienced education in Australia first-hand, through a series of classroom observations and learning walks, allowing for reflection on the differences between the two educational settings. In addition to this, the two teachers have also been able to share the Indonesian culture and language with students, as they collaborated with staff from Wodonga Senior Secondary College in the classroom.
