Kia ora,

I am delighted to welcome you to the information and registration page for MANZ Conference 2023. Our theme is: Be Inspired and Inspire: Whakamanawahia te manawa.

There is something for everyone! Our full Programme for MANZ Conference July 2023 will be available at the end of December which is when our registrations will open.

This conference will be open to all Montessorians/ non-Montessorians, kaiako, trust members, principals, parents and whānau, to help tamariki and rangatahi develop the skills needed to assist them on their journey to adulthood.

An addition to MANZ Conference 2023 is that we will be having a Parent Information session on Saturday 1 July 11.00 – 12.30 pm.

MANZ looks forward to you joining us at the Waipuna Hotel & Conference Venue in Mt Wellington, Auckland for an invigorating and fulfilling weekend.
