Join us for two days of sharing, learning, and co-creation as we unpack how we can strengthen students’ critical thinking, so they can make healthy decisions in a world where alcohol and other drugs exist.
We will share learnings from New Zealand secondary schools who worked with local alcohol and other drug services to develop Tūturu. Listen to them share their approaches to student wellbeing, the tools and pathways they created to help their rangatahi build agency, critical thinking skills, and decision-making confidence around alcohol and other drugs, and create the way forward together.

Simply Phonics is a fully planned phonics programme integrating oral language, spelling patterns, phonics, writing and reading.
The Simply Phonics Model highlights the fact that there is an incremental sequence for teaching phonics. Phonics only adds value to children's spelling when their teachers are super confident and knowledgeable in all areas of phonics.
By the end of the 2 days all teachers will leave with a significant boost in their knowledge, passion and skills in teaching phonics.
As an added bonus:
This will be the most inspirational, fun and multi-sensory workshop of the year!
For further details email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
