We are very excited to be sharing the news that the work of PENZ is continuing in 2020, but with a new conference name and two new venues!
Wellbeing in Education New Zealand (WENZ) is coming to the North Island for the first time in 2020 (at the Grand Millennium on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th April) and, due to the popularity of the conference in 2019, WENZ South Island conference is moving to a larger venue, at the Christchurch Town Hall (Thursday 2nd to Saturday 4th April).
Each of the two conferences will have their own distinct purpose and flavour, so you can choose the one that best fits your staff or school:
WENZ Auckland is a one-day event introducing the science of wellbeing to schools, with a conference theme of The What, Why and How of Whole-school Wellbeing. Alongside this one day conference we will also be running WENZ Workshops in Auckland on 7th April providing schools with the opportunity to dig deeper on distinct wellbeing topics (to be announced soon).
WENZ Christchurch will best suit schools further along their wellbeing journey. The conference theme for the South Island two day event for 2020 is Tales from the Sandpit - Practices and Strategies for the Implementation Phase.
Brought to you by Dr Lucy Hone (conference convenor of PENZ 2017, 2018 and 2019) and Dr Denise Quinlan (conference committee of PENZ 2018 and 2019), WENZ is dedicated to supporting whole-school wellbeing for staff, students and whanau throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, and will have the same amazing line up of home-grown and international speakers that has made this conference so popular over the last three years.
We will be in touch in November with the launch of the website with speaker profiles, programme details, call for "case studies", registration information and much more.....Please let us know if you have a colleague or friend who would be interested in receiving information about the conferences and we will ensure they are kept informed. In the meantime if you have any queries please contact Mandy Train, Conference Innovators, E: firstname.lastname@example.org etc.
