Sister School Agreement signed with Kardinia International College, Australia

Posted: October 20, 2016

I am delighted to announce that we have signed a Sister School Agreement with Kardinia International College. Kardinia is a Year 1-13 IB school (PYP, MYP and DP) located about an hour south of Melbourne in Geelong, Victoria Australia.

Kardinia and DC already enjoy strong links with a number of staff members having worked at both schools. Kardinia is also the school where one of our Primary VPs, Matt Baron, and his wife Kristy, moved to. The current Principal of Kardinia is David Fitzgerald, who was previously the Primary Advisor for ESF.

 The main aim of the partnership is to strengthen relationships, understanding and appreciation between the two schools. We aim to achieve this through the creation of opportunities for students and staff to participate in both formal exchange programmes and short term visits as well as through sharing resources and collaborating on the curriculum. Two Kardinia teachers will be visiting DC this term to meet with our Drama and PE departments.
