Festival of Education Saturday 29th March

This weekend is the Wellington edition of the Festival of Education, which coincides with the International Summit on the Teaching Profession. The festival is spread across the TSB Arena, Shed 6 and Frank Kitts park, Saturday 29th March from 8.30am.

The Festival is a day of courses, workshops, stalls and seminars that focus on education in all its forms, at all levels. There will be lots to do and explore, and new technology to try out. Find out about what’s happening in the future of education and schools, and listen to world-class speakers. There is family fun too with read aloud sessions, dance workshops, performances and more. Wellington City Libraries will be on the feature stage at 10am with our librarians performing one of our popular Baby Rock & Rhyme sessions, and again at 12pm with a children’s storytime -bring the kids!
