Report on Cluster Day#2

Report on the Day:

Present: Cluster Lead Teachers from Balmoral School, Edendale School, Mt Eden Normal School, Maungawhau School and Dominion Rd School
Apologies: Cluster Lead Teachers from Epsom Normal Primary School

Thanks for your patience and good humour today as misadventure ruled OK. We started at Edendale and finished at Mt Eden Normal Primary School. Thanks to both schools for hosting us.

In truth the only technology that proved reliable on the day was Annette’s mimio board and the mobile phone used to send the lunch order to a different school.

Resources from the day:
