Linking Bilingual Minds

Four teachers from New Zealand are spending two weeks in Wales, visiting schools in Cardiff, Swansea, Llandudno and Wrexham, to learn more about bilingual education. The teachers, Piata Allen (left), Nichola McCall (right), Stacey Reriti-Smith and Vicki Exeter, are visiting Wales under the Linking Minds Scholarship, a British Council-supported scheme giving young teachers in New Zealand the opportunity of international experience early in their careers. McCall, 27, from Manurewa High School, Auckland, said: “I want to speak to community leaders, principals and teachers in Wales and find out how they manage to get that equality between the two languages. It’s something that I’m really passionate about.”
