Over the past few days our school has been closed (but you students are still working) because all the Southern Regional Health School teachers from Invercargill, Dunedin, Blenheim, Nelson and Greymouth have met up with their Christchurch colleagues at Head Office in Tuam Street, Christchurch. We are doing some professional development and this is where I started this blog. It's all about becoming better teachers and doing our very best for you, the students. But it is great to catch up with all the other teachers in one place and it is a chance that only happens twice a year. So we will probably return to you next week full of enthusiasm with new ideas we are keen to try out.
