This two day event celebrates the success and expertise in our schools and provides the opportunity to 'whakaako tētahi ki tētahi' educate each other.
The two days will consist of three strands.
A series of 90 minute workshops will be planned from the submissions presented, covering a range of topics, acknowledging the many educational innovations happening in our classrooms and schools.
What will you do in an emergency? You probably already know to 'Drop, Cover and Hold' during an earthquake. But as a citizen of New Zealand, we all need to know more about the six natural hazards that cause emergencies–floods, storms, earthquakes, tsunami, volcanoes, and landslides.
More importantly, we need to know about the six impacts–stuck at home; can't get home; have to evacuate; no power; no water; no phone or internet.
During this virtual field trip to Hawke's Bay, explore the latest and best practice recommended for you and your school during an emergency.
Date: 11 October
Venue: University of Waikato, Hamilton
