It is our great pleasure to confirm Dr Cynthia Greenleaf will be running a professional development session for any interested Manaiakalani teachers and leaders at Pt England School, on Thursday 13 September at 3.30-4.45.

Attached is a flyer that we invite you to distribute to teachers/teams. Can we also ask if you can display the flyer in your staff rooms as a reminder to teachers to come along and to announce in staff briefings now and nearer the date. We are looking forward to the privilege of engaging directly with Cynthia at this session which we are confident will have powerful practical implications for those attending.

This is also a catered event so we do ask that if you or your teachers are coming to please register at the link provided, and no later than 9am, Wednesday 12 September.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

As always if there are any questions please just contact us.
