International knowledge and experience in education

In integral part of the work of Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning is the international study tours program. These provide educators, leaders and architects the opportunity to visit places of interest, with the view to broadening vision and facilitating change.

Anne has a broad network of international professional friends who provide insight and welcome the groups to their ‘home’. She plans each element of the tour from the professionals who provide the input, to taking oversight of the travel experience – hotels, transport links and even places for dinner. The tours are co-hosted with Stephen Harris, the principal at Northern Beaches Christian School.


In addition, Anne has acquired significant international knowledge that can be shared to inform your local practice.
