Hi again everyone. Click on, as we have some updates for you on upcoming events for September/October.
1. SUMMER WARS
Luna Leederville is hosting the Reel Anime movie festival this month, and JETAAWA invites you to come and see the family-friendly Summer Wars at 12:15pm on Sunday 19 September. We have organised for discounted tickets that add up to:
$5 for JET members
$10 for non-members
Please RSVP to email@example.com ASAP if you are interested. We still owe a free ticket to someone who responded to the careers survey, so be sure to indicate your interest!
As previously noted, the returnees function is now on Saturday 25 September (after the grand final) at the function room beside Fuji in Vic Park.
Thanks to all those who have RSVPd already – the rest of you, please RSVP ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Depending on numbers, we will ask for $5 or $10 to attend, which will cover dinner and drinks.
This event is an important one to let returnees know what JETAAWA has to offer and to share in the experiences of those fresh off the ground!
It looks like this year’s Careers Seminar will be on the evening of Tuesday 26 October at UWA.
We are hoping to assemble a presenting line-up consisting of as many ex-JETs as possible, to let attendees (most of whom are current uni students) know the benefits that joining JET can have for them in their future endeavours.
To that end, we would love our members to put their hands up to share their stories of how JET has helped them get where they are today, and how they have been able to use their interest in Japan or knowledge of Japanese to further their own careers. If you are interested, please reply to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the current context of doubts as to the continuing viability of the JET Program, we think that the Careers Seminar is a real and concrete way of showing that JET does measurably contribute to international relations and understanding at all levels.
kaiWA continues at 43 Below (corner Hay/Barrack Sts) from 5:30 each second Thursday – that’s 9/9, 23/9, 7/10, 21/10 upcoming.
Come along and just have a chat, meet new people, or help learn and teach in our J/E language activities!
