Kia ora e te whānau, we hope this update sees you well.

Our international friend and mentor, Wesley Fryer has published a blog, 3 Ways to Become a More Connected Educator During the COVID-19 Crisis. He writes,

As we grapple as teachers with how to maintain wellness and self-care for ourselves, our families, and our students, it’s important to consider how we can each become more connected to our educator colleagues around the world for support and idea sharing.

He goes on to recommend Twitter, Flipboard and online learning networks and events.

We also believe in the power of being digitally connected during this time. You've all been invited to join our dedicated group, He Kohinga Rauemi Tautoko - Support Resources for Schools, Kura and EY Centres to help stay informed, offer support and wellbeing, receive and share ideas, resources and advice as we transition to working and learning from home. So far, community members have shared the following (and more):

PLEASE NOTE: To contribute to this group, you will need to become a member by clicking JOIN.

You might also like to join the subgroup, Mental wellness first aid for more support on general mental, social and emotional wellbeing. We will keep populating this resource with timely and relevant support material, and invite you to do the same. NOTE: You will need to join the group to contribute.
