formalising of the sister school partnership with its host school Shintanjin
The second phase of the 2014 ROK- VIC Teacher Exchange Program in Korea has concluded.
Feedback from participants indicate that participating in the Program, while not without its challenges, has been professionally and personally extremely rewarding.
My site and school visits reassured that excellent quality placements had been organised for our ten Victorian teachers
Already two of the schools involved in the Program have signed agreements for ongoing sister school partnerships and other collaborative endeavours. Learnings gained through participating in the Global Lync program will support frequent and easy communication between the partner schools
The participating Victorian teachers will be encouraged to share their learning across the broader system on their return to Victoria.
