The inaugural New Zealand Primary School Teacher’s Conference (NZPSTC) will be held in Wellington from 15-16 April 2019. Collaboration is at the forefront with 10 subject associations and DANZ coming together to produce the event, which carries the theme ‘Integrated Learning and Collaborative Teaching in the 21st Century.’

Theme: Integrated learning and collaborative teaching in the 21st century

  • Approximately 65 professional development workshops over two days

  • Networking, sharing good practice, collaborative learning, being inspired and having fun!

  • Outstanding, innovative presenters

  • Motivational keynote speakers include:
    Hon Chris Hipkins, Dr Ann Milne and
    Whetu Cormick (National President NZPF)

As the national support organisation for dance in Aotearoa, DANZ sees this as a great opportunity to work collaboratively with Physical Education New Zealand (PENZ) alongside other Subject Associations to provide a platform for the professional development of Primary and Intermediate teachers.

“We are excited about the opportunities provided by this conference to support teachers and hope the programme of workshops and discussion will lead to a shift towards using kinesthetic learning in schools and the wider community" – Sheryl Lowe, DANZ Exectutive Director.
