Dr. Verayuth Boonpram, Director, Assumption College Thonburi (ACT), and Mr. Marcin Kempka, Head of Foreign Affairs, ACEP, met with executives from International Education Services (IES), the Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) of the South Australian Government to discuss the future cooperation between our organizations. IES, DECD was represented by Ms. Marilyn Sleath, Director, Mr. Darryl Carter, Manager, and Ms. Debra Lyden, Accommodation Officer.
Both ACEP and ACT signed a memorandum of understanding with IES, DECD and administrators meet regularly to discuss our cooperation so far and plan for the future. Every year, we send students and teachers to Australia for study tours and shadowing programs and also regularly welcome groups of Australian teachers and administrators to ACEP.
During a meeting and then dinner on Tuesday, the group discussed future cooperation. The 2018 ACEP Scholarship Program in March 2018 was a great success and ACEP is planning to send more groups in March 2019. Moreover, the group discussed sending teachers to South Australia for work shadowing programs.
We are looking forward to even more joint projects in the coming months and years, that will benefit the students and teachers from ACEP, ACT and Adelaide.
