Kia ora tātou,


No doubt all of you have settled into the year. It seems with the variety of activity on the list that no year is the same as the last in regards to levels, challenges and changes.


The latest Secondary Arts Newsletter was sent out. It includes details for the upcoming Regional Arts Partnerships (Raps7) that will begin around the country in a few weeks.


Some posts this week to help those in a BYOD environment. Lance’s use of the local Activate          Music Academy seems to cover a wide variety of ages. Katrina posted help with Sibelius and Composing.


Longest running thread was for Scholarship Music. Well worth a read even if you do not run it at your school.
