Creativity, flexibility and a positive attitude are crucial to succeed in this role.

 

Student Monitors are also instrumental in delivery of the bi-annual ACE (Arts and Cultural Enrichment) Week, and a variety of other functions that provide essential support for the achievement of the School’s educational and cultural mission. Engagement for optional programs is under a separate contract and at the discretion of the Extended Learning Manager. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants a leg up in international education, or likes working with kids!
