Pascal school is located in suburban area there is limited access to modern and qualified teaching institutes. It aims at creating and providing a friendly and inspiring learning environment for the students in that disadvantaged area. Thinking of the difficult backgrounds of the majority of the students in the area, the school just applies a similar school fee with public ones, which is based on the living standard of local people. With the modest income, the school’s management board is still managing to provide adequate facilities to create favorable conditions for the students to study, focusing on learning English – one of the necessary tools for the students to further develop in the future. Our top priority for support is public sectors, not private one. But with Pascal school, we understand that, “private school” is their status, but what they have done so far is not private at all – it is for the sake of all the students, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Convinced by the compassion and dedication of the management board of Pascal school, and after having positive feedback from several volunteers who have gotten the chance to work at the school, VPV decided to cooperate with Pascal school to give them as much support as possible to help the students have a chance to learn and improve their English in different ways. Main Aims and Activities The aim of the program is to provide English language speaking environment for students, especially those from difficult background. Pascal Secondary School is a private school founded in 2010. It is situated in Dong Anh district, surrounded by the country side. The school teaches around 150 students, ranging in age from 11 to 15 years. There are 4 English teachers who follow the governmental English teaching plan. The children do have some knowledge of English, but as it is often the case with Vietnamese students, they have poor pronunciation due to their lack of contact with English speakers.
Volunteers will be expected to help with the followings: ? Improving listening and speaking skills for students. ? Improving students’ competency in communication. ? Teaching students following the school’s curriculum. ? Organizing games and other activities in classrooms or outdoor in more flexible classes. Normally volunteers will teach about 20-30 hours a week. No placements available in summer time (June – July-August). Travel to work: The manager of the school will pick up the volunteer(s) and drive them to the school everyday. The ride takes up to 40 mintues depending on the traffic.
Volunteers will stay in a dormitory with rooms shared with other volunteers. Living conditions will be Vietnamese standard with separate bathroom, single bed with mattress. Food will be provided at accommodation. Meals will be mostly local food, which vary from the daily cooking schedule. Volunteers, especially those who are vegetarian may be required to do some cooking by themselves.
