We have partnered with the Asia New Zealand Foundation to provide New Zealand primary and secondary school teachers the opportunity to visit and partner with schools in Southeast Asia to establish lasting relationships that increase their students' interest and study of Southeast Asia.
The first Global Schools Partnership Project will see six New Zealand teachers travel to Jakarta, Indonesia, in April 2019 to connect with their Indonesian partner teachers to learn about each other’s country, cultures and education system. As well as developing personal relationships with their partner teachers, they will also plan long-term online connections between their students. The students will gain insight into their partnering school’s culture and educational system, which will continue to strengthen as the relationship develops over time. Their Indonesian partner teachers will visit New Zealand in June
Applications from New Zealand teachers for the Indonesia 2019 Global Schools Partnership Project closed on 29 November 2018. Look out for an announcement soon on the New Zealand teachers selected for the Programme.
