The recent Kāhui Ako Conference for the Massey Schools Cluster brought together educators of all levels, from early childhood to secondary school for a day of connection and learning.
Held on the first day of term two, the event was a rare chance for teachers and school leaders to network, attend workshops on a range of educational topics as well as learn more about various education providers in attendance, including Drowning Prevention Auckland.
The DPA education team, Helen Meyrick and Lynley Stewart were heartened by the positive response from teachers who were interested to hear about the support available for aquatic education in schools.
Drowning Prevention Auckland offers free, tailored professional learning and development (PLD) within the education sector to assist schools in developing an aquatic education programme in line with the NZC (2007) expectations.
