WRITING AWESOME ORS APPLICATIONS
Presented by Julie Nugent and colleagues
Register with Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org
Writing an ORS application can be a lengthy process that requires significant commitment from the team involved. This may be made worse by murky guidelines, time constraints or the sheer breadth of data to be collected and synthesised. It is not something taken on lightly.
We want to share expertise in this area and have designed workshops to make the journey more manageable and more successful.
19th October, 3.30-5pm: - aims to demystify the process, explore some examples, refer to supporting resources and guiding documents, and develop a pathway to complete an application.
9th November, 3.30-5pm : is a practical workshopping experience during which we will work through some applications together. Bring your data, bring your questions, and bring what you have so far.

Come and join us for an informative and interactive session where we will take you through the growth of what is now called Cooperative Learning and the process of putting these strategies into practice in your own classroom/school. We will review new ways of structuring and using groupwork to encourage your students to work together an achieve as a team while being responsible for their own learning and that of those in their group.
TEACHING SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SKILLS (SEL)
Tuesday 9 August, 3.15-4.45pm
Presented by Tracey Richardson
Please register with Tracey
Social and emotional learning (SEL) enhances students’ capacity to integrate skills, attitudes, and behaviours so they can deal effectively with daily tasks and challenges. We know that students learn best in positive classroom environments that nurture their social, emotional and cognitive skills. In this Zoom workshop Tracey Richardson will explore what resources, frameworks and programmes are available. She will make specific links with the NZC, different wellbeing models and will focus on resources that fit the NZ context. This 90 minute, after-school Zoom will provide participants with ideas and next steps for improving the social and emotional learning of our tamariki in Cluster 8.
