2016 Secondary Teacher Census

Organisation: Education Council

When: Between 30 March and 22 April 2016

Regions: National

Target Audience: Secondary

Discipline: Drama

Contact: Ryan Benjamin(rbenjamin@mcauleyhigh.school.nz)

The 2016 Secondary Teacher Census aims to provide the sector with up-to-date data on supply and demand patterns.

Thousands of secondary school teachers take to classrooms throughout New Zealand each and every day.

What subjects do they teach? What kinds of professional learning have they completed? What are their future plans in the sector? These are just a few of the questions that will be asked in the 2016 Secondary Teacher Census.

Between 30 March and 22 April 2016, secondary teachers in New Zealand state and state-integrated schools who have taught at Year 9 or above at any point since 2013 have the opportunity to take part in the Census. This includes teachers currently working as relief teachers or who have moved out of secondary teaching.

The Census is designed to provide the education sector with up-to-date data on supply and demand patterns. A summary of the findings, including a snapshot of each subject, will be released in June and will enable teachers to see where their specialties may be most valued in the future. This is particularly important for subjects and areas currently in demand, such as maths, science, technology and Māori medium.

Adding your piece will help to create the big picture. Information packs will be sent to secondary school principals soon with an invitation for teachers to complete the Census.

It will take about 15 minutes to complete and is also available in te reo Māori. All information submitted as part of the Census is anonymous and cannot be linked to an individual or school.
Independent research company Nielsen is conducting the survey on behalf of the Ministry of Education and has designed the questions to gather the most valuable information while keeping it quick and easy for teachers.

The Census is a great opportunity for the secondary teaching community to add their piece and see where the profession is heading...

Regions: Auckland

Target Audience: Primary, Intermediate, Secondary

Discipline: Dance

Type of Event: Performance

Contact: Pacific Dance New Zealand(auckland@pacificdance.co.nz)

A new festival brings Pacific contemporary dance to the floor at Mangere Arts Centre (June 13 – June 18) bringing to fruition an idea years in development by Pacific Dance New Zealand.

“The festival is New Zealand’s first contemporary Pacific dance festival of its type and showcases some of the country’s most exciting contemporary Pacific dance choreographers,” says festival
director Iosefa Enari.

Bringing together an array of choreographers who have previously taken part in the *Pacific Dance Choreographic Laboratory (2009 – 2015), the festival provides an opportunity for the artists
involved to take previously devised works from ‘the lab’ and re-present them in developed form.

“It is also a wonderful opportunity for audiences to familiarise themselves with the incredible diversity of performance out there,” iterates Enari.

The artists include: Justin Haiu (2009 ChoreoLab), Tupua Tigafua (2012 ChoreoLab), Nikki Upoko (2013 Choreolab), Katerina Fatupaito (2014 Choreolab), Leki Bourke (2014 Choreolab), Hadleigh
Pouesi (2015 Choreolab) and Jahra Wasasala (2015 Choreolab).

A special guest performance by Julia Mage’au Gray of Sunameke Dance (first mentor to the lab 2009) brings an international flavour to the festival, incorporating Papua New Guinean dance and
video narrative. Audiences who may be used to Polynesian dance expressions have an opportunity to experience contemporary Melanesian dance in this special edition piece entitled ‘Wearing My Map’.

Also on at the festival will be a special performance of ‘Fatu na Toto’, the greatly successful show by Le Moana and Tupe Lualua (Pacific Dance Artist in Residence 2013). This show sold out in
Auckland and Wellington seasons last it toured and will also travel to the San Diego International Fringe Fest in 2016. This is a chance for Auckland audiences who missed it the first time around to catch it before it leaves our shores.

Coinciding with the world of dance on the floor is an exhibition of Pacific dance costumes, which
will be on display in the exhibition halls of the centre.

“This exhibition will show costume wear, head dresses and other adornments from a variety of Pacific traditions and presents audiences another avenue in which to connect with Pacific dance,”
explains Enari.

The festival showcase will give audiences both familiar and unfamiliar with the breadth of work in the contemporary Pacific dance sphere an insight into the world and joy of Pacific Dance in one
place and one week of fabulous dance. Don’t miss out.

Each virtual field trip introduces the concept of opera with background readings (in 2 reading ages with narrations) and interactive activities plus all the elements of the live trip are available for students to have their own field trip experience including videos, audioconference recordings, diaries and rich imagery.

LEARNZ is a fun way to learn, that exposes students to things that are happening nationally and globally. It is real life learning. Lots of fun and high interest videos.
