Cobham had the privilege of hosting the Asia NZ Foundation leaders Canterbury workshop this week.Cobham Intermediate hosted a group of Principals and educators from around Canterbury and explored how we can better equip schools and students to thrive in the Asian century.
The Asia New Zealand Foundation website is FULL of amazing resources for schools to use. They will enable you to plan and design programmes of learning as well as professional development to grow Asia awareness.
Thanks for Jeff Johnstone and Sean O'Connor for facilitating the workshop, it was informative and affirming - Cobham is well on it's way to thriving in an Asian century with an amazing International and Asian languages programme, our new and hard working Cultural Diversity student leaders team and a staff committed to developing our culturally responsive practices. Exciting times ahead!
