The students also gained a different perspective when the New Zealand teachers had a chance to teach some of the English lessons. They also had the privilege to view a cultural performance put up by the New Zealand teachers on Teachers’ Day. This overseas teaching assistantship experience has provided an eye opening experience for both the teachers and the pupils. ~ Ms Sambwani Vimi Dail (Principal)
