Sister School Partnership
The Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians, the National Statement on Asia Literacy in Australian Schools and the Prime Ministerial White Paper, provide a clear statement on specific goals for our students. These include gaining foundational and in-depth knowledge, skills and understanding of the histories, geographies, societies, arts, literatures and languages of diverse countries of Asia and their engagement with Australia.
The National Curriculum outlines Asian Studies, Aboriginal Studies and Sustainability as priorities for all students.
The most exciting outcome has been the establishment of our sister-school partnership with Changzhou Miduqiao Primary School in the Jiangsu Province of China. As international partners we will be sharing professional learning experiences, teacher visits, teacher exchanges, whole school student interaction through various ICT opportunities and student visits/tours both from China and to China. McKinnon Primary School has signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation between Friendly Schools.
