Minoh and Lower Hutt have now signed an agreement for a new teacher exchange starting next year.
Known to the group who are putting it together on the Lower Hutt side as MINTEX - MINoh Teacher EXchange - the exchange will involve two teachers for up to 2 weeks in schools of both cities.
It's expected the teachers will co-teach classes, engage with teachers and students and will include cultural and sightseeing activities too.
We're fortunate to have the close support of the Minoh City [Council] Office for this as their remit is to oversee the education of students in Minoh as well as other social welfare portfolios.
