Kia ora tātou


Wow, what a term. It’s been a rollercoaster for many of you and your students. I really hope that you can at least carve out a few days in the holidays to keep your school laptop shut and focus on recharging. (The Musicnet list will still operate over the holidays)


After a number of years as the chair of MENZA, Jeni Little has stepped down and been replaced by Ben Lau. Duncan Ferguson has stepped down from the deputy chair role and been replaced by Kat Daniela. I thank both Jeni and Duncan for the leadership of MENZA and welcome Ben and Kat to their new roles.


Finally, keep an eye out for an announcement for the MENZA workshops on offer in the 2nd week of the holidays (10-13th Oct). Aside from workshops and keynotes there are sector hui planned as MENZA is seeking to have some conversations around strategic direction that the membership wish to take.
