Heading to Christchurch for South Hui

Sitting on board flight NZ  bound for Christchurch with the proviso that there is thick fog in Christchurch expected to clear after 8am.  If not we are likely to return to Dunedin….

Well, here I am sitting, relaxing, anticipating a full-on two days with my team.  What an incredible experience we are about to have as we view all schools in the south and work collaboratively to best meet their needs.

As is typical of team south, we have a fun element in amongst the hard work.  Today at lunch we celebrate the inaugural ‘great southern dip-off’.  All team members are invited to present their favourite dip and dippers to be judged by us all.  As with a lot of things in life, looking forward to the event can be as much fun as the event itself.  This has certainly proved to be the case with a google doc sharing our intended creations and a twitter fest of ingredients and creations shared.  OH what fun this will be!

I fly back from Christchurch on Friday night hopefully arriving home before my guests.  This weekend is the fourth #educampdunners to be held at Silverstream School in Mosgiel.  With educators travelling to this educamp from Invercargill, Lawrence,  Queenstown, Wanaka, Oamaru, Timaru, and Christchurch it really is a gathering of passionate, committed educators.  I am always conscious of connecting and networking and growing our ‘e’ circles, and am delighted to see new educators signed up!  

It is never too late to sign up, so if you have an hour or two free on Saturday morning come over to Mosgiel and join the conversations.  Share your successes and challenges, connect and network with like-minded educators.
