Musicnet Summary end of Term 1, 2021.


Kia ora tātou

It’s the last day of term, and are hopefully looking forward to at least a few days off. 


The conference planning team of the Bi-Annual MENZA Conference, to be held 11-13 October in Tauranga is finalising details in the next week. This includes sharing the bios of the Keynotes, performers and cost to attend. Watch out for registrations to be live on the conference website here and via the regular MENZA E-Notes email. (If you don’t get it, contact MENZA). Perhaps you could begin your school PLD application process, filling out all the details and just have it ready to submit once the cost is confirmed.
