Summary of Musicnet to 13 August 2021

Kia ora tātou

It’s been a busy few weeks this term, and the lack of the usual weekly summary from me is an indication. There has been quite a few discussions around content across different levels and its great to see what advice teachers are giving. Of course there has been an increasing amount of NCEA email traffic. I realise that for non-NCEA teachers, these emails are possibly not very relevant and just fill up your musicnet email folder. However I hope you’ll understand about the importance of Muscinet being a (possibly only) platform for teachers to share their thoughts and listen to other perspectives on the changes that have been proposed. 


To all teacher who will be affected by the NCEA changes, I strongly encourage you to spend 5mins before 5pm today, filling out the two surveys. Even if you are in favour of everything, the Ministry of Education needs to know that.
