Volunteer Teaching Guidelines

In the best educational interest of our student monks, we have established the following guidelines to assist with the teaching schedules.

  1. Only volunteers that are staying for more than 2 weeks would participate in class instruction. You may choose to teach Maths, Sciences, Social Studies or English and would be provided with a curriculum to follow by the full-time school teachers. This allows us to continue the syllabus for studies.
  2. Volunteers staying less than 2 weeks may participate in helping children during the lessons as assistants to the teachers or the long-stay volunteers.
  3. We invite the volunteers that are staying for less than 1 week to come to observe the classroom and one of the teachers would be happy to show you our school. You may participate in games and drawing classes on Saturday.
  4. We have 4 classrooms. Each classroom can properly accommodate one instructor and two assistants. In the happy situation of more volunteers, we request that you adjust within yourselves for the best benefit of children and your travel schedules.
