GME Goes to CHINA!

GME Founding Partner Dr. Marj Henningsen travelled to Shanghai in June to participate as the Keynote Plenary speaker at a 3-Day seminar for teachers and coordinators interested in the IB-PYP and MYP programs.  The Seminar was organised by Hong Kong-based International Bilingual Education Experts (IBExperts) and hosted by the KangChiao International School in Shanghai.

Dr. Marj loved the experience and really appreciated all the hospitality shown by Kate Lin and her team at KCIS, as well as Wesley Han and John Sperandio from IBExperts/GlobalSchoolManagement.

As a result of that initial trip to China, GME is now getting more involved in Chinese schools.  In September Dr Marj and GME co-founder Mary Henningsen visited Weifang High Tech International School in Shandong province in order to conduct a readiness assessment for IB-PYP implementation as well as an introductory workshop for teachers and school leaders on Inquiry Pedagogy (bilingual English/Chinese).

GME is proud to have expanded our bilingual horizons!

The same week they also travelled south to Zhejiang province to Huayuan Village city where the Garden Group is collaborating with Zhejiang Normal University Overseas Study Centre to build a beautiful new K-12 school campus.  GME is part of the team led by GSM that has been contracted to design and manage the International Division of the new school, which plans to seek authorisation for IB programs as it opens and grows.  The school is slated to open Fall 2017 officially.

Also in December our other founding partner Ghinwa Itani Malas will join Dr. Marj to offer our GME Student-Led Inquiry Institute at two different locations in southern China.

We couldn’t be more excited about this new path for us!
