SPEECH (after signing ceremony)

Thank the school for opportunity to visit

 

Congratulate the school on its success in conducting a WACE program over the past 5 years.

 

NIT was the first school in China to offer a WACE program.  Its success has resulted in four additional schools either conducting the program or in a stage of application to join the program.

 

There are four colleges in Malaysia, and one in each of Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City and Dhaka Bangladesh that offer the program.  Currently there are over 1000 students enrolled on the Curriculum Council database.

 

The interest shown from other schools in China, Malaysia and Vietnam is testimony to the product, our state and our country in its ability to design and deliver a quality education system.

 

Students have competed in the WA Business Educators Competition and a national mathematics competition and have won prizes.  Two of those students are with us today.  Would these students stand up please (minister leads applause)

Graduates from NIT now attend the best universities in Australia.  Each year the academic performance of the students gets better and in 2008 many schools in Western Australia would have envied the high graduation rates and excellent TER score achieved by the students.  This year's Year 12 group will need to work hard to maintain this high standard.

 

I congratulate the administration and staff for their efforts in teaching the students in the WACE program.  In 2007 and 2008 teachers from the school were selected to participate in the marking panels for WACE examinations.  Three teachers have participated.  Only one other teacher from the off-shore schools has been selected as a WACE marker.  

 

Express the wish that graduates of the WACE program come to study at the world class facilities at Western Australian Universities.

 

I have just finished discussions with the administration at NIT and we are going to establish a sister school relationship with Rossmoyne Senior High School in Western Australia.  A few years ago this school was evaluated by a panel of experts from around Australia and was considered to be the top school in the country – a great honour.  I hope this relationship flourishes to the benefits of both schools. 

Thank you
