We don't look or feel our age, but we're celebrating a couple of milestones this month. Yesterday marked the third anniversary of moving into our gorgeous new centre, and on 26th April we're celebrating 20 years as a not-for-profit trust. We think that's quite an achievement!
For those of you who don't know our history .... we started life back in the 80s as the West Auckland Education Centre. Many years, different locations and a new name (chosen to better reflect a commitment to supporting educators throughout the country) later, we're still here. Becoming a trust was the best way to secure a sustainable future in an unpredictable world; we've evolved from small, local beginnings to being a connector of educators around NZ and the world.
We wouldn't be here without our numerous supporters: from the visionary principals in the Waitakere Area Principals’ Association who were there from the start, through to the many individuals and organisations that have worked with us over the years. Thank you!
So we're having a party! All educators are warmly invited to join the 20th anniversary celebration at the Learning Network NZ centre in Henderson, Auckland, on Thursday 26th April from 3.00 – 6.00pm. Music, refreshments, old faces and new friends. Contact Maryanne Smith to RSVP or for more information. See you there!
