What happens when a kiwi and a kangaroo exchange classrooms

The teacher exchange programme has been initiated to provide opportunities for staff to experience One School Global first hand.

The development opportunity provided on an international exchange is to:

  • Enable teachers to test their practice with different students, in a different environment.
  • Enable schools to learn from the experience and feedback of “fresh eyes”.
  • Build people connections at all levels that can help us to realise the potential of One School Global.

The approach is more than observation. Teachers must teach, and learn. The first exchange took place in November, when Sherryn Rowe from Woodthorpe School, in Perth Western Australia, traded places with Trish Gilbert, from Greymouth on the West Coast. Both teach Year 3-6.
