Celebrating Pedagogical Practice

The Senior Teacher team is offering an opportunity for teams or individuals to share their pedagogical practice with colleagues to acknowledge, and celebrate the great practices we as teachers offer to tamariki and whānau.

You may want to share about Effective or Innovative Practice, Bush Programmes, Enviro Schools, or anything that is unique to your Kindergarten or your own practice.

Each team or individual will have a 30 minute presentation slot to present their pedagogical practice (20mins to share and 10mins to allow for any questions).

If you are interested in being part of this, please send a blurb to Tania; tania.jack@wmkindergartens.org.nz for consideration.
