2012 Workshop Trial Day

We had a most successful day on October 18th when three groups of 9-12 year olds hailing from Northland to Waikato threw themselves into the task of sampling a range of the proposed new workshops for 2012. Our tutors were Tom McGuire, Wayne McDougall, Avon Hansen-Beadle and Nick Oram and the workshops showcased Philosophical Enquiry, an Examination of Physics, Aspects of Mathematics, Creative Explorations of Music and Dance with Performance Poetry as a lunch time extra.
Both Elaine and Jean felt the day had certainly been of benefit and useful enough to repeat on a regular basis. The comments made by the enthusiastic consumers during the end of day analysis will definitely be taken into consideration at our next planning meeting.
