Please feel free to use the following in any communication with your Board setting out the professional growth and development that attendance at the conference will ensure.
The aim of the 2015 NZEI Rural & Teaching Principals Conference (open to all principals) is to provide principals with a balance between key speakers; Dr Julia Atkin, Mark Osbourne ,and Sam Johnson to excite, stimulate and motivate and a series of workshops that are focussed on practical ideas and discussions that will underpin effective practices right now in NZ schools.
This highly successful conference is limited to 160 participants and also includes the ever popular school visits to see ideas in action and opportunities for interactions between principals over topics of immediate concern.
The conference is located right in the centre of Queenstown. The Crowne Plaza, the location of the conference, has discounted their room rates, and extended these for the long weekend, and flight costs to Queenstown are extremely attractive from all over the country.
