We finally got to hold our Teacher Only Day, in person, at Stratford Primary School this year. Third time lucky! We had a great day with keynote speakers Elizabeth Schaw from the Ministry of Education who took us through the Curriculum Refresh and Rob Cope spoke about the ‘Informed and Empowered’ online safety program that schools will be working their way through this year. We also had a range of great break out speakers who shared their knowledge so it was a great day!

Thank you to all that took the time to fill out our feedback form. We had some great feedback about our speakers and some constructive feedback to help us plan for future events. 
A common theme coming through from the responses was the opportunity to meet and build relationships within our Kāhui Ako community. The questions asked was;
What was most useful from the day?
