ALLiS Remuera-Epsom Cluster Launch
Tuesday 16th February

On Tuesday 16th Feb we launched the ALLiS project for our cluster.

We are working to create a clear pathway and smooth transition for students studying Asian languages as they move through primary, intermediate and secondary school. 

238 staff from the eight cluster schools attended the launch. There were also principals, BOT and PPTA members. Martin East, president of the New Zealand Association of Language Teachers (NZALT) and Janine Chin, Manager: Confucius Institute Auckland, attended.  They were joined by Jiwei Fu,  National Language Advisor for Chinese, and Akiko Harada, National Language Advisor for Japanese. ILEP's Pathway Manager, Christine Biebricher and Karen Hollis, Teacher Development Advisor, were also guests. 

Lorraine Pound, Peter Ayson and Jeff Johnstone, Education Director at Asia New Zealand, spoke eloquently and students from Parnell District School delighted the audience with their dances. This was followed by inspiring speeches in Japanese, Chinese and Korean from Michelle Schneideman, Anastasia Varlamova and Grace Won. All Year 13 students who spoke from the heart about the importance of being able to connect to other cultures through languages.

We hope the staff enjoyed the event and getting together to discuss this programme.
