Wow! Term 1 is nearly done!
Term 1 seems to have flown by and we are heading into the first non-contact time of the year very quickly. In many schools swimming sports have been a priority while the weather is good, and educators and support staff have been forming relationships with new or returning students.
The Willow Education offices have been a hive of activity as well, and we have just had our busiest term to date with workshops every week (except the week that Jo was on school camp with 60 children and 14 adult helpers!). We have driven all over central North Island working with New Educator groups, APs and DPs, Support Staff, early childhood staff and teachers getting to grips with MLEs – and it has been fabulous.
The Easter weekend will give us all a well-earned break, and some time for educators all over the country to look after themselves for a change. Remember to take some “me-time” everybody, as you can’t support students or colleagues when you’re stressed and exhausted. That way we can all launch into next term full of energy and brimming with fabulous ideas.
Whatever aspect of teaching and learning you are interested in, do get in touch with us and see what Willow Education can do to make your PD sparkle!
We look forward to seeing you in a Willow Education workshop very soon.
