At the beginning of January, Eva Cornforth our HOD Science flew to Phoenix Arizona to begin her Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching Scholarship. She is currently studying at Arizona State University, whilst working alongside teachers at both middle and high schools in the Phoenix district. The programme is a mix of academic and cultural study, designed to give teachers from across the globe, the chance to work together and share best practice. Alongside the two teachers from New Zealand are teachers from Indonesia, the Phillipines, India, Uganda, Finland, Brazil and Taiwan.
In March she will have the opportunity to travel to the Grand Canyon and in May will spend time in Washington DC before flying back to New Zealand.
