Thanks Stacey for pointing out the  error in yesterday’s message where I gave the date of the next cluster group as March, instead of May!

Here’s the updated version:

  • After its highly successful launch last month, the Whangarei cluster has its next get together on Wednesday 28th May at 3.30.

  • Also on Wednesday 28th –  at 4.30pm – is the next Hamilton cluster meeting. This will be held at the Faculty of Education, University of Waikato. The focus for the session is assessment strategies for Mantle of the Expert. Please RSVP if possible to
  • Finally, a little further off Tuesday 10th June will be the next Bay of Plenty cluster at 4.30pm at University of Waikato Windermere Campus. Further details to be confirmed, but this session will be all about drama conventions / drama for learning. If you are planning to attend this one, please let Jon know:
