Ms Heath in Sydney Australia

On Monday morning very early, 4.30am I arrived at Christchurch Airport ready to fly to Sydney for a tour of schools. We arrived to very warm weather and boarded a bus that took us to our hotel.
We were very fortunate to be able to go to the Hilton Hotel for a presentation by Apple. They gave a yummy lunch and talked to us for a while and then we got into groups. My group put together a Podcast, it was fun and I learned lots of new things.
On Tuesday we went to visit a school that goes from Yr 1 - Yr 12 called John XX111 and St Marks. It was a very new school with lots of lovely new classrooms. You will see some of the photos below. Later that day I went on a harbour cruise and saw the Opera house and had lots of fun.
Today is Wednesday and we visited a wonderful school called Methodist Ladies College and it had students from Yr 1 - 12 as well. Their junior school was only a year old and had an underground carpark for parents to drop their children off. The classrooms are called learning Studios and each space has two rooms working together. Their classrooms have no walls and are referred to as agile spaces. Check the photos below.
