NZ Primary Teachers' Conference


Kia ora teacher/kaiako

The Subject Associations (listed in the flyer) are excited to launch the first marketing push for the inaugral Primary Subject Teachers Conference.

The website it now live ( although please note  it is still in a construction phase, the organising committee are currently waiting on the website designers to complete work to make sure it is ready for viewing and functioning to receive registrations and workshop proposals. 

Please take time to check out the facebook (nzpstconference) and twitter pages (@NzPrimary), again please be aware that these platforms are in the initial planning and development phases and we will be starting to put more information on these over time. 

However, please take time to share the flyer, social websites and conference website with your school networks.

We only have a small window of opportunity to connect with schools and principals before they finalise their budgets for 2019, so I would appreciate everyone’s help with this first important marketing phase.
