Cluster meetings this week – plus a new group for colleagues in the North

Here are two reminders and one bit of news

For Hamilton mantlers, don’t forget our final cluster meeting for 2013, which is tomorrow, Thursday 28th Nov at 4.30 at Melville Intermediate School. Come and hear about the exciting things colleagues at this school have achieved with mantle and process drama. You will be inspired.

For those based in the Bay of Plenty, our final meeting for the year is the following day  Friday 29th Nov at the Tauranga Steiner school – also at 4.30 for 5pm. Our focus will be “hooks”. Come and explore some of the different methods used to engage students at the start of a mantle experience. You might be surprised at the variety of ‘ways in’ that have been found to be effective.

For both these gatherings, as always, we ask you to please bring a contribution to shared afternoon tea and, if you can – an interested friend! Huge thanks to all those schools who have hosted us through 2013.  We look forward to more next year.

And now the news – after a very inspiring inservice day with teachers from three primary schools in the Whangarei region, we are looking at beginning a cluster group for Northland teachers in 2014. If you are keen to be involved in this group, please contact Leslee at Kaurihohore school. Her email is

Wow – so much happening – clearly the mantle flame is very much alight!
