Palms Australia are Seeking Volunteers
Tulele Peisa and St Dominic’s Grammar School require a volunteer Early Childhood/Primary Teacher for a two-year placement. Tulele Peisa is a NGO based in Carteret Island, established in 2007 to facilitate an ecologically and culturally sustainable relocation and resettlement of the Tulun/Carteret Atoll community, who are facing threats from climate change.
St Dominic’s Grammar School was established in 2015 to provide elementary education for the children of relocated families. “Tulele Peisa” in the Halia language translates to “Sailing the waves on our own”. In the current context, it was adopted by the Carteret Council of Elders and Tulele Peisa to mean “Striving for strength and action through capacity building of our own people”.
Palms is currently seeking volunteers to assist with this work.
