Each year we put on an evening with an acclaimed speaker for our school community. This year, Karen Boyes, a well known educator and speaker in New Zealand and internationally, will bring her presentation for parents which is entitled: "Future-Proofing Your Child". To make this evening enjoyable for you, we will provide food and child-care, though we are not able to fully assist with babies (sorry!). However, babies are welcome in the presentation.

Future Proofing Your Child

In a busy, fast paced, changing world where change is the only constant and knowledge is easily accessible, the concern bubbling up is how to ensure your child is truly prepared for the real world. The 21st century skills are very different skills from when we were at school. Many are just common sense, however this is not quite so common." In her inimitable style Karen Boyes will engage and entertain you as she delivers a highly informative presentation for parents.

"An expert in effective teaching and learning, study skills, motivation and positive thinking, Karen has the rare ability to draw her audience in and keep them enthralled. She is both informative and entertaining, as she passes on her practical solutions for learning."
