Kia ora tātou


Wow! We’re nearly at March already. It seems like the startup busyness of the school year has just intensified over the last week. I’ve been really encouraged by the support that the members of Musicnet have offered to colleagues reaching out for help, ideas and direction as they navigate changing circumstances. 


Remember that anyone can send ask a question or share a resource via musicnet@lists.tki.org.nz. Perhaps if you haven’t contributed, or asked a question before, March could be the month that you post your first message…….
