Mrs Heather Taylor and I had an excellent meeting with her to discuss IB needs from a St Mark’s perspective and ideas for making the PYP stronger for our school. We then had a lovely tour of St Mark’s and Marcia enjoyed talking to the students, particularly the Year 8 classes who explained where they were at in their preparations for their Exhibition later this term. I also attended an IB Regional Network meeting with St Mark’s staff and joined with other Wellington IB schools where the focus was on curriculum matters. Read more »
