It’s incredible to comprehend that MANZ Conference 2016 is finished.
By all accounts, it was amazing.
We had fantastic speakers in Wendy Calise, Sarah Werner Andrews and Peta Gibson, Cathy Wilson, Krista Kerr, Rene Novak, Rukshat Singh and Layla Barker. Record attendees helped create an amazing atmosphere. Thank you to all who attended and participated in this conference.
All three Keynotes were fabulous! Peta -she reminded me “why” I work with that age group -we have changed our language -it is now toilet learning also, I sat in 3-6 with Sarah about exploration -broadening my understanding of Montessori social exploration
All of Sarah’s topics of exploration and happiness are core to the philosophy of our centre. I enjoyed her push to ‘relax’ Montessori to allow children to explore and experiment whilst still respecting their environment.
Wendy 6-12 speaker, delivered a great keynote speak that hit me both professionally and personally. I was lucky to have heard her last talk of the day on Sunday, and it really tied up her message.
