We would like to invite you to a special meeting for our SLANZA Otago membership to discuss the proposed changes to the National Library Services to Schools Transformation Programme. If you are unaware of these changes to the curriculum services from the National Library, attached is the information for schools or we invite you to go to the Services for Schools website at this link: http://ow.ly/IiPIy
We are hoping to have as special guest at the meeting, Geraldine Howell .Geraldine is the Director Literacy and Public Programmes for the National Library http://ow.ly/IiQ5j . We are very fortunate that Geraldine is willing to talk with our membership, answer questions and hear our concerns. As of 11/2 no reply has been received from Geraldine, but we hope we will hear from here before the meeting.
This meeting is for SLANZA members only (your 2014 membership is still current until the new round of registrations shortly) but if you would like to attend the meeting, you can register as a SLANZA member for 2015 at the meeting or go to our SLANZA website: http://www.slanza.org.nz/personal-membership.html
There are various initiatives from many branches of the education sector such as NZEI, New Zealand Principals Federation, LIANZA and many others who are working to make their concerns heard about this decision from the National Library but please do talk to your Principal and teaching staff about this so you can bring questions and concerns of their behalf.
