Fraser Valley Distance Education School (FVDES), in Chilliwack, BC and Gwen Lizarraga High School (GLHS) in Belize City have been “twinned” to provide opportunities for staff in both countries to collaborate and share education practices with each other. The goal is better learning for all students, regardless of age, sex or socio-economic status. As part of the twinning process, FVDES staff shared their knowledge and experiences in teaching and supporting students from a distance with a group of teachers from Belize, in Central America, as the latter participated in a one-week training session at FVDES in Canada. The visiting teachers from Belize left with the mission of sharing their learning with colleagues at GLHS and starting to deliver their curriculum within an open school model.
