Musicnet Summary 14 March 2020

Kia ora tātou

Hygiene of recorders and the Covid-19 virus were popular threads in the last week. I do encourage you to have a read through threads and think about what your plan is if your school had to close. (Apart from catching up on all that marking, and making awesome resources you never get around to). 

Earlier in the week, I had a productive meeting with the other arts facilitators (drama, dance, visual arts, art history) and also with the team with oversight of the current NCEA review from the Ministry of Education. I hope to be able to share some of that in the upcoming weeks once I get some documents/powerpoints from them.
