  • Language rights, education and identity in Timor-Leste

    Presented by Kirsty Sword-Gusmao. As the Southeast Asia region’s newest nation emerging from centuries of colonial rule and a brutal 24-year occupation, Timor-Leste faces immense challenges in establishing a quality education system and national curriculum which reflect and uphold the country’s rich cultural heritage and resilience of its people. In the University of Melbourne’s Human Rights Lecture, Kirsty Sword Gusmão will share her experiences of working to develop a national language-in-education policy which respects the linguistic rights of children to acquire literacy in their mother tongue, and to create a new primary curriculum which fosters pride in the nation’s unique cultural identity, history of struggle and experience of nation-building.

Kirsty Sword Gusmão gives this lecture Language, language policies and education in Timor-Leste at The Australian National University. Timor-Leste is a nation rich in cultural and linguistic diversity. With over sixteen languages spoken across the country in addition to the officials languages of Tetum and Portuguese,Timorese society is truly multilingual. Whilst the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste defines Portuguese and Tetum as co-official languages, and English and Indonesian as working languages, the issue of language in education remains highly sensitive and challenging. While Portuguese and Tetum are currently used as languages of instruction in most of the education sector, the knowledge of these languages amongst many students and teachers, particularly in remote areas, remains very poor. The limited mastery of students and teachers alike of the languages of instruction is contributing to school failure, high rates of school drop-out, and has the potential to lead to socio-economic exclusion and marginalisation. The fourth Constitutional Government's National Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030 acknowledges that a key factor contributing to delayed acquisition of reading and writing schools in primary - school age children is inadequate use of students' mother tongues. Timor-Leste's National Education Commission presented the Ministry of Education with a National Language in Education Policy in February 2011, and amongst its key recommendations was the adoption of children's first language as the language of instruction in pre-primary school and throughout the first three years of primary education as a means of assisting young learners to transition successfully to learning in the official languages. The lecture explores the issues of language use and language in education policy in Timor-Leste through the lens of linguistic rights and preservation, social justice and identity building, and provides a snapshot of the Timor- Leste National Commission for UNESCO's Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education pilot program. Kirsty Sword Gusmão was appointed by the President Dr Jose Ramos Horta as Goodwill Ambassador for Education in October 2007. She is Chair of the Timor-Leste National Commission for UNESCO and also heads up the National Commission for Education.

‘A life-changing experience’ is how a group of Southern Cross University students who worked on conservation and community projects in Indonesia and East Timor have described their New Colombo Plan Scholarship-funded trips. Some helped a Sumatran elephant conservation centre design a tourism strategy, others did orang-utan surveys in Kalimantan, while another group focused on sustainable tourism and produced sales and marketing material, including a website and brochure, for a small Balinese island that is home to a critically endangered bird. Listen to what some of the students said about their experiences when they travelled to Indonesia and East Timor in May and June this year. VIDEO LINK Leah Hays, a third year environmental science student, worked with Indonesian national parks, forestry and conservation workers in the Way Kambas National Park on the island of Sumatra. “There was a positive exchange of knowledge between students and forestry workers: students were taught the effectiveness of camera trapping, and forestry workers were taught by us how to construct effective turtle traps,” she said. Leah said surveying methods like these were essential for determining a species’ abundance measure. “This knowledge is crucial for devising mitigation strategies to avoid further degradation of key wildlife habitat.” Ashleigh Frost, who’s studying a Bachelor of Social Science, created a website called Conserve Nusa Penida http://conservenusapenida.wordpress.com/, which showcased the culture and diverse landscape of Nusa Penida island. She said it was the first online presence designed to attract sustainable tourism to the small island where the Bali starling, a threatened bird, lives. “The website is for those wishing to visit the island as well as an information platform that holds conservation and ecotourism at its core. “The website provides practical information as well as a blog platform that outlines our experiences, information on cultural traditions and manners, and encourages tourism based on cultural education to help us understand the places we visit. The core purpose was to design a website that attracts a certain demographic to the island that values mindful, culturally sensitive tourism in Bali,” Ashleigh said. The pair encouraged students to apply for New Colombo Scholarships. “I found the experience to be incredibly enriching, providing me with clear insight into a line of work I feel very passionate about,” said Leah. “The opportunity to work alongside local Indonesians, in particular the local non-government organisation ALeRT, put into perspective the potential of a small group of people who share a common goal. Together with my team, I was able to look at the bigger vision for the Elephant Conservation Centre and figure out ways in which we could turn the grassroots centre into an eco-sustainability model for other centres throughout Indonesia. Inspired by the achievements of Bali Green School, I was really able to use my love for design, permaculture and wildlife conservation in the development of a comprehensive field report - a tool I hope will be continually built upon as myself and others share future experiences at the ECC. The practical application of knowledge learnt throughout the last three years of my environmental science degree, has really cemented my aspirations for a career in conservation management. I feel better equipped at communicating with large groups of people, even with a language barrier, and most of all, have learnt the value of involving the whole community in a collective vision, so that everyone can feel ownership over project outcomes and feel they are a part of something incredibly special.” Ashleigh said the experience was valuable but challenging. “Being on Nusa Penida was not easy, nor a holiday for our SCU team, made up of environmental science, marine science, education and social science students. We experienced firsthand the difficulties in starting up projects on the island, going through a number of ideas and suggestions with the Nusa Penida Friends of the National Park Foundation who, with generosity and determination, have made such a positive impact on the island through community projects and conservation efforts.” Applications for New Colombo Plan Scholarships for 2015, made available through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, are now open. For more information, contact Associate Professor David Lloyd in the School of Environment, Science and Engineering on david.lloyd@scu.edu.au “It has been fantastic for our students, from right across the University, to work with partner agencies to do something positive. The Friends of National Parks Foundation in Indonesia and the Save Indonesian Endangered Species fund were fantastic and we all benefitted from the collaboration,” Professor Lloyd said.au
