Kia ora tātou
The week has ended not quite like how most of us expected it. Here in Nelson, the local Fringe Festival has already decided to go online, and other concerts cancelled. I encourage you to all be kind to yourselves this weekend, whatever the decision is today.
A timely reminder that all of the video recordings and digital handouts from my live streams done earlier in the year are still up on the digital resources page of www.menza.co.nz. Lots of resources there are open access, whilst others require you to login.
The next round of Creatives In Schools ($17,000 of funding for each school) closes on the 21st of August. Get together with a local musician/producer/band and figure out a way to use this funding to support your students’ learning.
