As one of the organisations delivering Ministry of Education funded professional development we are excited to be seeing the progress that our schools and Communities of Learning are making with accelerating student achievement. We still have some limited spaces to work with new schools in 2019. If you are interested in talking to us either about Ministry or privately funded PLD please get in touch as soon as possible with Jane Ph. 0210376870.

In October, Charlene and Jane attended the New Zealand Literacy Association Conference, while Erin was attending the CLESOL conference in Christchurch. Andy, meanwhile was enjoying a well deserved break in New York and Hawaii!! International keynote speakers at these conferences confirmed a lot of our thinking around literacy teaching in 2018 and we are excited to be able to share some of our learnings from these conferences.

Jane and Charlene have been talking with teachers again about the My Learning Range of exercise books available from Office Max. Watch this space for some new additions and changes to the range in the future. If you haven’t seen these exercise books, ask your stationery supplier if you can get a sample package to look at. We think they are the best range on the market and highly recommend them for use in all Primary and Intermediate schools.
