The PNGAus Partnership Secondary Schools initiative aims to strengthen relationships between Papua New Guinean (PNG) and Australian secondary schools. Delivered across two years, this initiative will deepen people-to-people links and build secondary education capabilities in STEM, English and student agency.
Following a competitive recruitment process in May-June 2019 and initial orientation and familiarisation activities for PNG participants in July and August in Port Moresby, Australian and PNG participants from selected schools came together in PNG in September-October for a joint learning activity focused on establishing their school partnerships and again in Australia in November for a joint learning activity focused on growing and strengthening their school partnerships.
Strong foundations and great goodwill have been established between PNG and Australian partner schools participating in the initiative in 2019. In order to keep this momentum growing throughout 2020 and 2021, despite COVID-19 travel restrictions preventing face-to-face learning activities to occur, we are running a number of online projects and activities to continue to strengthen the school partnerships and our community and build on the outcomes achieved to date.
The timelines below outline key activities held in 2019 and 2020 so far.
Additional speakers will be announced over the coming weeks
