After months of planning and sponsorship sourcing I am pleased to announce that Nathan Mikaere-Wallis will be speaking at two educator focused, and one parent focused presentations on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th October 2015.
You are all invited to:
A Parents Evening with Nathan Mikaere-Wallis on Wednesday 14th October, 7.30pm to 9.30pm in the Waiouru School Hall.
Using recent discoveries about the nature of how children’s brains develop and work, Nathan will share parenting strategies that work with this research. For this seminar Nathan will focus particularly on transitions for children – specifically the transitions of a parent leaving long term for work, or returning after a lengthy absence. The presentation is designed to be easy to understand and interactive – so feel free to bring your questions about the brain along!
Nathan is part of the Brain Wave Trust, and X Factor Education, Christchurch. He has been a lecturer at the Christchurch College of Education, lecturing in human development, brain development, language and communication and risk and resilience. He is an amazing, dynamic speaker with a nack for translating complicated science into a format easily understood by all.
If you are a Waiouru based educator (home care included and most welcome), or a parent who would like to hear more from Nathan please contact Marama directly as there are limited seats available at the educator presentations. You can see more information here.
