Malaysian Bridge Partnership

Lilydale West Primary School is excited to be involved in a BRIDGE School Partnership with Sekolah Kebangsaan Puteri, Seremban, Malaysia.

The Australia-ASEAN BRIDGE School Partnership builds intercultural understanding, global competencies and citizenship through classroom collaboration. So far this year LWPS students have had the privilege of classroom visits by Miss Sufiah who visited in May 2016. She was able to share with our students her knowledge of teaching and learning, as well as her impressions of daily life and education in Malaysia. Two teachers visited SK Puteri in September 2016, during which time Penpal relationships were established. At present we are working on a Collaborative Project entitled ‘Two Countries, Many Stories’ which compares, contrasts and reflects on daily life in Malaysia and Australia. A book will be published of student work as lasting evidence of our valuable work together this year.
