Leaders of the VirtuesCountry Day School reached out to Full-CircleLearning requesting a2014 teacher training inPort Moresby, Papua NewGuinea, an island known for its diversity.
After being greeted at the airport by children celebrating their many different cultural identities together, the teachers gathered at a vocational college. There, educators from20 schools, from preschool to college level, gathered to study Full-Circle Learning approaches to their unique conditions. The goal of their first co-planned learning project was to stop the spitting of beetle nut juice (used to quell hunger). A retinue of environmental projects were among the reports submitted in the following years.
At the time of the 2014 visit, the teachers said they had not received global collaborators for a professional development program to enhance their community-wide teaching tools since the 1980s.
