Congratulations to New Zealand Post Primary Teachers' Association / Te Wehengarua (PPTA) general secretary Kevin Bunker on being elected to the steering committee of the Commonwealth Teachers' Group (CTG) at the Education International Sixth World Congress held in Cape Town in July.
The CTG comprises Education International affiliates from countries in the (former British) Commonwealth.
The CTG helps organise the Commonwealth Teachers' Forum, which is held in tandem with the triennial meetings of Commonwealth education ministers, and provides support to unions and teachers facing hardship or oppression from less-than-friendly regimes.
Kevin will be representing the Asia-Pacific region that stretches from New Zealand to Pakistan.
