The Mills has been selected by C.O.S.T. (Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching) and by the Victoria Language & Culture Association as a suitable school to complete the training of new English teachers coming from the United States. The purpose of this partnership is to allow student teachers to develop and practice teaching techniques, as well as acquire the skills necessary to teach effectively.

Starting today, 21st October, and until the 16th December, we will have the pleasure of hosting an American student from the Easter Illinois University, Sophia Parrillo, as our very first student teacher. Sophia will be mainly engaged in the Year 5 english lessons, but she will also have the opportunity to visit and work in Year 4, Year 6 and in all Middle School classes.

This is undoubtedly a great opportunity for all parties involved! Welcome Sophia!
