We invite all those who are interested in secondary Montessori education to participate in our meeting in Dublin, Thursday 10 October, 15.00 – 17.00.
During the meeting we will show recent examples of exchange between schools, such as the Road trips organised by Montessori Express and the Montessori Global Games that were recently held.
We will discuss in what way this type of exchange contributes to your own school practice and how Montessori Europe in general and this working group in particular can support this.
Finally, we will collect concrete proposals that can be worked out in future sessions of our working group.

At the Sofia congress Secondary Education and Montessori Express held a joint meeting. In the future the two groups will merge into one: there is so much overlap between the groups that a merge is expected to be more effective.
18 attendees were present at this meeting. They first tried to establish what the key interests are for this group. The following list was drawn up:
- Exchange on a practical level
- Learn from each other
- Personal network to use
- Pool of expertise/ share common knowledge
- Developmental help
- Professional development
The group will establish a separate Facebook group to exchange and communicate. The ME newsletter will be used to share information. A directory will be set up to collect questions from schools and also what they migth have on offer.
A plan was launched to set up learning cycles. This can be done in various ways:
- By establishing partnerships between schools from different countries with the same topic
- By creating learning cycles on professional development
- Guest lectures
- Skype meetings
- Possibilty for joining
