Only a few weeks to go, though I note my end of term teacher cold is arriving this evening, maybe protesting the length of the term! The arts online lists were a little glitchy over the weekend, apologies to those who posted late last week or in the weekend, your posts arrived this morning:
Grace inquired about alternative senior courses outside the traditional fields. Susie extended an invitation for a visit to see how she structures visual arts courses at Southern Cross in South Auckland.
Donna reminded us about nominations for the ANZAAE Award for Outstanding Contribution. Thanks to conversations clarifying how to go about this from RobynSusie, and Donna. To clarify:
