Kia ora tātou
Welcome back to work! It’s clear teachers are back as the emails start to flow on Musicnet.
Just a reminder that if you’re posting a vacancy, adding the city in the subject line is really helpful. Not everyone knows where your school is!
In other news, MENZA have been in conversation with the Ministry of Education about relaunching Kiwi Kids Songs. More information will follow but the next step in the process requires hiring a Primary Educator to help deliver the project. This could be done by a currently employed teacher, who has the necessary skill set. If you think this might be you, please contact Tim firstname.lastname@example.org. (There is a very short turn around on the application process.)
