THE GREEN LION SAMOA
Assist teachers in carrying out their responsibilities at government schools in SAMOA, the beautiful Heart of Polynesia! You will teach children in pre-schools and primary schools in Apia and surrounding areas.

Teaching at Pre-Schools We teach at government pre-schools which run from 09:00 to 12:00 from Monday to Friday. The children learn basic reading and writing. They learn alphabets and numbers, and play games and engage in fun-based activities to fuel their learning process. You will help students improve their English by teaching them in English and by having conversations with them so they learn to communicate. Teaching at Schools We will also assist at primary schools.. All the children attending the schools come from nearby communities. The schools follow the government syllabus as prescribed by the Ministry of Education, although the day-to-day management in many cases has been delegated to the community councils.

Samoa is arguably one of those “forgotten” countries which never fail to make a huge impact on anyone lucky enough to travel beyond the better known destinations. It’s not generally known that Samoa is in fact the Heart of Polynesia, and is very rich in its Pacific culture. Land and seascapes are absolutely stunning and diverse, ranging from true rainforests to some of the most beautiful beaches on Planet Earth. Spread over primarily 2 islands i.e. Upolu (on which the capital Apia is located), and Savaii which is larger but less populated. Black lava stone from the non-active volcanoes can be seen in many places, and 3,000 year old star mounds are blessed with mythical stories. Good tar sealed roads connect the many villages and natural sites around the main islands. Apia is also a popular fishing destination and visit to the fish market in Apia in the early morning will surely give you a unique experience! There are also many restaurants in Apia to fulfill the craving of seafood in you.
