Changemakers visit Spain, Finland and Estonia

As part of our innovation process, two members of our staff went on a benchmarking mission to innovative schools in Europe.  The first stop was at Collegi Monserrate in Barcelona  Then they went on to Helsinki, Finland where they were able to meet with different stakeholders and key players in the educational field.  The visit gave a comprehensive scope of their educational system, as they were able to meet with delegates to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Education, the Head of the Teacher Training Program at the University of Helsinki, school principals and teachers, creators, innovators, and startup founders.  They also visited Mektory and the Estonia’s e-Estonia showroom at Tallin, as this is a flourishing nation in the digital field. They came back with a lot of ideas to implement in our school.
