Teachers in Kenya and Tanzania welcomed Cambridge International Chief Executive, Michael O’Sullivan, into their classrooms in February during his first official visit to both countries.
Together with the Cambridge team in Sub-Saharan Africa – Juan Visser, Regional Director; Joseph Mbugua, Manager, East Africa and Khanyi Mamba, Marketing Communications Manager – Michael visited schools to learn more about the different ways they deliver the Cambridge Pathway.
‘We appreciated our schools’ senior leadership taking the time to meet with us. We found their input and engagement very useful. The enthusiasm for education was palpable,’ said Juan Visser, Cambridge Regional Director, Sub-Saharan Africa.
School leaders, principals, teachers and heads of departments of Cambridge schools were also invited to attend Cambridge Principals Forums in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to hear updates from Michael and the Cambridge team. Brookhouse School in Kenya and Haven of Peace Academy in Tanzania hosted the events.
Tony Macfadyen, Headmaster, St. Constantine's International School in Tanzania attended one of the forums. He said: ‘It was definitely worth travelling from Arusha for this very good event. There were many excellent points made, updates given and there was news on exciting new courses we might engage with.
‘Michael O’Sullivan gave a very informative and engaging presentation, as did other staff, that made me feel St Constantine's International School is part of a large, but more importantly, progressive family that utilises research evidence to guide its way forward alongside a strong vision of what international education is, can, and should be.
‘The vision of Mr O’Sullivan and the philosophy of Cambridge International came across strongly and is something we at SCIS are very comfortable with. Much of what he informed us about was exciting and innovative, and chimed really nicely with our ambitions and pedagogy as a Round Square school.’
