Kia ora tātou

We’re halfway through NZ Music Month. Check out the resources and links in this email from Mike at the NZ Music commission.


Registrations are filling up for the MENZA Conference in October. It is in the school holiday so accomodation and flights will go up in price soon. Jump on the event listing on Facebook event if you want to share accommodation to lower your costs. I’ve done that before and it’s a great way to meet educators from somewhere else.  (Also note the early-bird discount closes on the 1st July so get your PD request forms in ASAP!)
