The Spring Regional Meetings are being held this week. Information pertaining to Local Inhabitant’s tax, Leaving ALTs, information regarding the Toyama 2013 Orientation, the customary lesson exchange and much more will be covered.
All games covered at the meeting will be uploaded on the website within the next week so please look out for that. Thank you all for your participation so far!
The annual Toyama Team Teaching Handbook is out! All Toyama ALTs should have already received the Handbook at their base/ main schools. If you have not received it, fear not, you will also receive another copy at the Spring Regional Meeting this week. You can also access all lessons plans on the website.
A special thanks to Clarrisa Tong for designing a truly stellar cover! And of course, to all of you amazing ALTs for submitting a wide variety of lessons and making the 2012- 2013 TTH a huge success!
After months of planning, weeks of designing and hundreds of hours reformatting, myself and Martyn Bissett, our trusty webmaster, are thrilled to finally unveil the new Toyama JETs website.
This website is more user-friendly, better organised and easier to navigate, and will hopefully aid you during your tenure here in Toyama while you are on the JET Programme.
The site is far from being completed. It is a long and meticulous process and will rely on the talents, creativity and expertise of each and every one of you. Any assistance, advice or helpful critiques are gladly welcomed. This site expected to be completed some time before the new JETs arrive in Toyama in July, so please be patient with us as we work on the final touches. (The information on the old website will be available until the end of July for those wishing to access some of its contents.)
We have introduced some new additions to the site, which we intend to further explore in the future, such a Toyama JETs YouTube channel, and a Toyama JETs Alumni section where we will get insight into the lives of some of Toyama’s former JETs.
This website is a reflection of all of us, a community of ALTs and CIRs who come from countries near and far, who have all united to call this small, humble prefecture, Toyama, home.
All the best. (^o^)/
