New Zealand – Hangzhou Sister School Partnership Programme
Urgent call for Expressions of Interest
The Centres of Asia Pacific Excellence (CAPEs) are committed to enhancing New Zealand’s economic engagement and cultural understanding with the Asia-Pacific region. The CAPEs are supported by a consortium of New Zealand's four leading universities: Auckland, Waikato, Otago, and Victoria University of Wellington.
Together with the University of Waikato’s Institute of Professional Learning (IPL) and the Education Bureau of Hangzhou, five New Zealand schools are invited to establish formal partnerships with counterpart schools in Hangzhou.
Through IPL facilitation, schools will codesign and deliver a curriculum embedded programme of inter-cultural learning in areas of thematic or academic relevance, with opportunities for ongoing inquiry and teacher and learner exchange.
