GME Supports Opening of New KG in China

In February, Dr. Marj Henningsen and GME Associate Lama Marji provided 52 hours of teacher learning opportunities to open a new KG in Dongyang Huayuan, Zhejiang Province, China.    The KG opened with 45 students aged 3-5 and 9 teachers, including 3 international teachers and 6 Chinese teachers.  The school, owned by the Huayuan Group, aims to apply for PYP candidacy this spring and eventually the school will grow to offer primary, middle, and secondary programs for the local and regional population.  Dr. Marj and Lama provided around 8 days of intensive sessions on inquiry pedagogy prior to opening and then stayed at the school an additional two weeks to continue providing hands on support inside the classrooms and with planning.

Dr. Marj continues to provide leadership support, sharing school head responsibilities with Mr. John Sperandio from Global School Management consultants.  GME will continue working on the development of this school at least through 2017-2018.
