Hi everyone,

        Last week we discussed:
Individual Education Plans thanks to all those who contributed and to Bronwyn who shared a template.  Don't feel that it is too late to join this conversation.
Alana Madgwick shared a video of the latest Light the Fire meeting.
Michelle Johannson updated us on Niuean Language Week
Juliet Fry shared the latest PLD Newsletter. Lots to read with a focus on using the EAP standards and community engagement. Juliet also outlined changes to the dates for the upcoming Best Practice Workshops
Adele asked if New Zealand born students could use EL standards. Thanks to Julie Luxton for her swift and informative response.
Lee is looking for an assessment resource for EL standard 27993
Upcoming events
Tokelau Language Week
Did you know that  the majority of Tokelauans live outside of Tokelau? So it is vital to encourage the use of Tokelauan language and to celebrate Tokelauan culture.
On other communities
Primary ESOL Online - Janet shared her weekly update including some great links for Tokealau language week.
English Online discussed how to legitimately offer Restricted Films to younger students, through applying for an exemption for the censor.
