Barcelona, November 22, 2023 — Over 150 educators, including teachers, principals, and coordinators from the International Baccalaureate (IB) School Network of Catalonia and Andorra, gathered at St Peter’s School last week for a dynamic two-day conference. This year’s conference marked a significant milestone as it welcomed colleagues working within the Primary Years, Middle Years, and Careers-Related programs for the first time, expanding the network to include professionals from all IB programs in Catalonia and Andorra.

Born in 2019 under the guidance of Antonio Muñoz, IB Senior Manager, the IB Schools Network of Catalonia and Andorra has swiftly evolved into a thriving hub of educational synergy. This interconnected network weaves together subject teachers, course coordinators, and school principals, fostering collaboration across the educational landscape.

Opening session by Antonio Muñoz: On the inaugural day, Wednesday, 15th November, the IB Senior Manager, Antonio Muñoz, addressed the participants, highlighting the importance of these gatherings.
