For perhaps the first time in history, one of our member schools held their “Parents Meet and Greet” in China. On the 27th of June, Birkenhead College representatives Louise Plummer (Deputy Principal and Director of International Students) and Sally Baker (International Student Manager) joined our Operations Director for Greater China, David Gao, to meet with more than 30 parents of current and future Choose New Zealand students and overseas agents in Shanghai.
During the seminar, Louise and Sally introduced Birkenhead College and the various academic, sporting and cultural experiences they offer, and David explained the New Zealand education system and the role of Choose New Zealand Student Services. Two current students also shared their experience as international students in New Zealand.
Louise greatly appreciates what Novo Education and its Choose New Zealand Education Alliance has done to unite students, parents, agents and schools. In her experience dealing with educational partners, Louise has never encountered such a professional team with such a strong focus on student welfare.
There were many questions asked in the Q&A session and we received extremely positive feedback from all attendees.
