Visitors from United Arab Emirates

This week we had a visit from 25 student teachers from the United Arab Emirates. They are studying at Fujairah Women’s College – Higher Colleges of Technology. They are in Melbourne as part of their educational studies and learning about the school systems in Australia. The Melbourne University is supporting their visit and has included DMPS in their tour schedule. This is a great honor for us to be able to share the way we plan our teaching, support English language learners, use technology and provide further languages in the school.

Thank you to Nick Reynolds from Melbourne Graduate School of Education for organising this visit.

When ISTE visted …

In October, an ISTE group came to visit Debney Meadows PS as part of their Australia tour, whilst also attending the ACEC2012 conference in Perth. We were lucky to have the group visit us at school and allow our children to showcase their learning so enthusiastically. Ellen, Director of Technology at The Cathedral School, one of the group members has collated her photos and passed them on to us to enjoy.

Visiting Debney Meadows Primary was one of the highlights of the study tour. I so appreciate the time it took you to prepare for our visit and for you, your students, and your teachers to so warmly share your special school with us.

Thank you Ellen for generously taking the time to put this video together.
