Building Sister School Partnership


After the back-and-forth with my Korean counterparts, I made a significant breakthrough in promoting international education at MY school. By building our very first sister school partnership, the journey to inbound and outbound exchange just turned a new leaf. The timing also couldn't have been better because we just celebrated the school's 50th birthday.
