Kia ora tātou,

Well done! You’ve made it to the end of the term.

Over the last month I’ve been enjoying the short tweets from @VisableLearning. This is part of the PLD work of John Hattie. I’ve found them a great way to stop, pause and think about an aspect of teaching and learning during my busy day.


“5 to 10 minutes practising what was taught at school has the same effect as 1 to 2 hours studying something different”




“Reality: Hattie says telling a student to ‘do your best’ is the worst thing a teacher or parent can do”


I have a few of my other favourites here.


Summary to 1st October 2017

General (for all Music Levels)

  • Clive has offered free subscriptions to his great online music and theory course to Decile 1-4 and small schools. Contact him directly for more details. Please pass this information onto any teacher in a school that meets the threshold.

  • Pictures are now up from the first annual ‘Faculty Rocks’ competition. Start practicing for next year to see if your faculty could beat Manurewa High and James Hargest High School.
