Featured review

Thanks for yesterday, so much to take away and unpack for us to add to our plan moving forward.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the presentation you did to our Kahui Ako last week!!
It was so exciting to hear what you had to say and so inspiring, not only as a mum, but as an educator myself. When we know better, we do better.
