A group of students from Charlton Brown, an Australian school that provides training in childcare and tending to the disabled and the elderly, are in Vietnam for a five-week practical placement in a charity school and care facility in the central city of Da Nang.
The students are expected to provide support to disadvantaged groups including children with disabilities and the elderly at the Thanh Tam Special School in Da Nang, Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reported.
They will help the children and the elderly take part in physical games and discuss methodology with Vietnamese teachers at the school.
Their Vietnam trip is part of the Charlton Brown Global Linkages Program initiated in 2009. The program provides students with the opportunity to apply practical skills developed in the classroom to different cultural settings, and gain an understanding and appreciation of working in an international environment.
In Vietnam, the program is offered in partnership with the Sacred Heart Orphanage and Home for the Aged located in Da Nang.
