Junction Arts Festival returns from Wednesday 7 - Sunday 11 September 2016 with performances and arts activities for children, young people, school groups and families.

Junction offers tailored, affordable and age-specific packages to school groups including multiple shows, events and activities.

Over the past six years, Junction has been dedicated to providing and increasing opportunities for schools, teachers, students and families to expand learning, engagement, excitement and experimentation in education by involving them in the Festival.

Through specific projects, we have involved groups of children and youth from different neighbourhoods, socio-economic backgrounds, cultures, and religions, supporting and encouraging learning, experimentation, inclusivity, pride of place, and tolerance.

We believe that participation in the arts and Junction can contribute to increased participation, engagement and interest at school, increased understanding of ideas and lateral thinking, critical awareness, communication skills and confidence, and for teachers and schools, an increased understanding of new approaches to learning and education through the arts.

At Junction, we are committed to supporting education and increasing the value of learning in our community through the arts in fun, experiential and creative ways.

Please sign up to receive our e-newsletter at to stay up to date with Festival news and events.

Pre-service Teacher Volunteers

Contact: Jordan Alexander, Tasmanian Education Society TEDS
p: 0409901653   e:

Date: Available any time          RSVP: 22 December, 2016
Location: Statewide or Southern Region

Intended Audience: School Leaders & classroom Teachers looking for volunteer support.

The University of Tasmania's Tasmanian Education Society TEDS are looking to found a volunteering program for pre-service teachers.

The volunteering program would make use of the Volunteering Tasmania website. On this site pre-service teachers could construct online profiles and schools could directly contact them or openly advertise for required volunteers.

We have constructed a pro-forma that would allow volunteering vacancies to be advertised concisely and effectively in the 'supporting files' of this notice.

We understand that in-school experience is valuable for pre-service teachers and their future employers. Such a volunteer program would offer schools engaged volunteers and University of Tasmania students the opportunity to gain additional first-hand experience.

The Tasmanian Education Society is a student run body representing and supporting students studying teaching at the University of Tasmania in Southern Tasmania.
