Fiji is renowned for its spectacular beaches and coral reefs: a picturesque string of islands floating peacefully in the Pacific Ocean. This is true but as a picture of Fiji it is incomplete. Fiji also has impoverished rural populations who as yet have not been able to benefit from the booming tourist trade in the country. Your teaching can help them have a brighter future.

After seeing the impact that our teaching projects have already had on Fiji, you’ll soon see that education is a crucial part of achieving sustainable development. By teaching in these communities volunteers can make a real difference to the lives of young people growing up in Fiji, learn more about life as a teacher in Fiji and contribute to establishing sustainable development programmes.

We recommend staying for at least four weeks to allow the children and teachers to get used to you, and enable you to make the most constructive contribution to the community and the school.

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Your work schedule will cover a comprehensive, varied and enjoyable teaching programme following the national curriculum, at a fantastic primary school in Suva. Your work will engage you fully with your pupils and will awaken your creativity and initiative. Volunteers help teach the children of all ages at primary and intermediate school level, working a full school day five days a week. The respect students will show you, the friendliness of the school staff, and the opportunity to introduce engaging new activities into the classroom is what makes teaching in Suva, Fiji’s Capital City, a once in a lifetime experience.

You may be directly involved in the administration side of working in a school by helping to mark pupil’s work, report writing, data entry and paperwork as well as helping to produce an inspiring teaching strategy including preparing homework and we encourage you to assemble innovative and effective lesson plans. Your classes will last just under an hour each, with school starting at 8:30am and ending at 2:30pm every day.

As well as this you will have the opportunity to help with lots of extracurricular activities which will vary extensively depending on your personal skills and interests – whether it is helping to put on a play, organising a choir, or helping to coach a sports team. Whatever you decide, you are sure to gain huge satisfaction from interacting with and inspiring these underprivileged children, whilst enhancing your own skills and experience significantly.

There is the opportunity to also assist at the secondary school next door. However, to do this you must have experience in either tutoring, teaching or being a teaching assistant and have a degree in the relevant field.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1 : Fiji Teaching

The Fijian archipelago lies scattered lazily in the achingly blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, bathed in the radiant antipodean sunlight. Its towns and villages are veritable melting pots of cultural influences – see multicoloured Hindu temples perched next to relics of the traditional indigenous spirit houses with their lingering sense of an ancient magic.

Its irresistible shores are fringed with picture-perfect palm trees, and the azure waters that surround the islands are inhabited by an astonishing array of marine creatures; over 1,200 species of fish including clown fish, trigger fish, blue tangs, 12 species of whales and dolphin, anemones, soft coral and much more.

Enjoy fragrant sun drenched days and balmy exotic nights – try a Fijian beach party for whirling fire dancers, traditional dancing and delectable food cooked in a traditional underground oven. Fiji will enchant you with its infectious, chilled out “Fiji time” lifestyle and its heavenly beaches – the perfect paradise location for your adventure!
