Lynne, Margie, Sue, Mary and Sue have been involved in alot of professional development throughout the year. More recently we ran a very successful Web 2 workshop (on a Saturday), for teachers from other kindergartens and other early childhood centres in Nelson, Blenheim and even one from Australia (she was here visiting).
What have we done - an evening at the Nelson Museum with the Nayland Primary teachers on the Treaty of Waitangi,
-a workshop with a visiting music and movement teacher,
-Margie is going to present to a group of 2nd year student teachers
- we are all attending a team workshop on the “Art of Facilitation”, which will be followed up by visits from the instructors, to observe us in action.
-We are also organising a “Creativity Conference” for our Nelson Kindergarten Association and hope to have 120 people attending in September.
-We will be attending Ulearn 2010 in October during the term break. Margie and Lynne will be presenting a workshop to other teachers from right across the education sectors, and Sue, Mary and Sue tell us that they will cook the tea. (Well, we have got news for them!)
