Kia ora tātou
It’s the last day of term 3! Well done, you’ve made it through parent conferences, performances and sickness. Time to sit back and relax somewhere in the next two weeks.
It’s 9 days till the MENZA Conference starts and I do hope that you’ll be one of the nearly 150 delegates attending. The program is jam-packed with workshops and opportunities to network with other teachers and the keynotes. Keep an eye on your email for final updates.
