Our goal is to:

Connect Schools for Enhanced Learning Outcomes

In this newsletter we invite you and your students to participate in a number of exciting and innovative programmes and professional learning opportunities.

Through our collaborative schools network we are able to connect you and your students to some amazing professionals who have a huge depth of expertise and passion for what they do. Tim Morgan brings you NZ’s first online PE programme for primary students with the Perfect Game; Geoff Wood’s Filipino students host Asburton students with theirVirtual Merienda & invite others to join them; and we introduce ourfantástico Spanish teacher Eva Anton.

Thank you to all the amazing people in our schools, who truly get what it means to collaborate beyond their own school gate for the benefits of all our children in NZ. If you think you ‘get it’ too, are future focused and want to share collaborative practice, then get in touch with us we can help make those connections.

In this edition we also give you a heads up on PLD for teachers ‘How do i teach Computer Science?’ provided by Trevor Storr from Core Education – don’t delay in registering for this, it starts this week, and places are filling up. Michelle & Rebecca are looking for teachers to trial their Primary Industry resources.

Finally join us in a webinar to explore Hail. Hail is behind our online communications, and is giving us a digital footprint that helps us tell our stories, in a way that can extend our reach, is easy to use and looks great.

Kia pai tō wiki  Have a good week
