Dr Pedro Noguera and Dr Allyson Pimentel visit NZ and Kia Aroha College

We were privileged to have Dr Pedro Noguera visit New Zealand as the keynote speaker for the Tuia Te Ako 2015 Conference in Christchurch from 8-10 July.  It was also great to have his wife, Dr Allyson Pimentel, travel with Pedro and to join in all of the conference activities.  Pedro and Allyson visited Kia Aroha during the weekend on their stopover on their way home to the USA and promise to return.
