Thursday’s staff morning tea saw BSSC staff farewell four Chinese teachers who have called Bendigo home for the past three weeks. Starting in September, Minna, Chris, Shirley and Jason will be teaching BSSC’s VCE in China.
Over the past three weeks, they have been working hard with their BSSC Mentors to learn about the curriculum and assessment and to develop confidence in the pedagogy needed to deliver VCE. Each visitor took pleasure in sharing a little about what they have learnt during their time with us before being presented with a certificate and Bendigo Pottery plate by Principal Dale Pearce.
This week we also welcomed a visiting delegation of 15 students and teachers from Shanghai Wenjian High School. They had a whirlwind, one-week visit, enjoying the sights of Bendigo, integrating with BSSC students, and learning about Australian culture.
