The eight workshops will run during Terms 1, 2 and 3. A differentiated programme is offered for teachers of Years 1-3 and Years 4-8. They are designed for PRTs in their first year of teaching or teachers who are new to the NZ schooling system.

The focus for the workshops will be developing effective teaching of mathematics through:
Workshop 8: The Arts
How can “The Arts” promote and enhance literacy programmes?
The venue for all workshops will be St Columba Centre, Vermont St, Ponsonby. Parking is available onsite, at the rear of the building.

In-school support for PRTs
In addition, in 2021 we will also be offering in-school support to PRTs attending our workshops, for an additional cost. Please contact Jane van der Zeyden firstname.lastname@example.org for further details of how that would work for your school and the costs. We will tailor that package to your individual needs.
