My Family and Traditions - a competition for Victorian government school international students before they arrive in Victoria!
Deliver your presentation to the panel of friendly judges about you and your families traditions or routines. For example:
English teacher Ms Denise Cornish says:"My family and I have a tradition around family meals. We try to get together on a Sunday night for a shared meal. It is a noisy event full of unfinished conversations and laughter. We spend hours preparing a meal that is eaten in a very short time, but I know it is eaten with sheer enjoyment and that my sons, their partners and grandchild enjoy the fun. This tradition was handed to me by my mother and father. Every Sunday they would cook a 'Sunday Roast' and my brother and his family would come home. It was always a loud event where we would share what happened during the week. It was like a mini family celebration."
Ms Cornish's presentation would involve examples of the meals she might cook. How her family participates and how the tradition came into the family.
Mentoring and practice sessions are available to give you the best chance of winning. To register, email email@example.com and include your name and international student number.
When: individual online sessions from
12pm, Melbourne time, Friday 22 and Saturday 23 March.
