16 Mar 2018


Breakfast and seminar: 7.30am - 8.45am


Breakfast seminar: $55 + GST pp


You’ve started your journey, engaged in professional learning and enthused your staff and students, but what about your community? As educators we know things have changed but do your community understand this change? This seminar will share a selection of case studies from New Zealand schools who have already successfully engaged their communities in the process of developing a shared vision for the future focused education they want for their students.

This CORE breakfast session will:

  • explore the success of other schools as they have worked alongside their community and facilitate change
  • develop actions and strategies to raise participation and engagement in the consultation process
  • share key pieces of research to support deeper understanding and consultation.

Who will this session be of interest to?

This session will be of interest to school leaders and teachers undertaking school-wide change and who want to ensure community collaboration in this process to bring about innovative change to teaching and learning.
