Youth Internship 2012
Aranni Page an education student at Charles Sturt University, Bathurst has been appointed the Global Education Project NSW Youth Intern for 2012.
During 2012/13 Aranni will join the GEPNSW team in the AusAID funded initiative to integrate the teaching of global citizenship into classrooms across New South Wales.
Aranni was chosen as this year’s intern based on her understanding of global education and how the actions of the individual can make a significant contribution to shaping a better future for the global community.
Each applicant was asked to outline an action for positive change that they could implement in the classroom.
Aranni outlined her ‘green classroom’ concept – a project designed to educate students about carbon footprints by investigating the impact of their choices and actions on the environment.
"I would work to establish home to school initiatives, whereby students educate their families about living sustainably, and work to set up school and community programs and events for lifelong teaching and learning about sustainable living," she said.
The 'green classroom' project was a key factor in Aranni’s selection as the 2012 Youth Intern.
The Global Education Project NSW offers education students the opportunity to develop their understanding of global citizenship, create resources for the teaching of global education, teach in an overseas school and share their experiences with other pre-service teachers.
Education students interested in applying for the 2013 youth internship are encouraged to register their interest now.
