Tenā koutou kātoa,
The Canterbury Literacy Association has a long proud history supporting teachers and members in our community with Literacy focused events and opportunities for students. The CLA committee is a group of volunteers passionate about literacy and supporting opportunities for educators connecting with other educators.
Following our successful hosting of the 2019 NZLA conference in Christchurch, the impact of the COVID pandemic resulted in the association’s activities and functions being paused.
With the support of the NZLA executive, 2023 is the year the CLA will reappear and we have a range of ideas on offer for teachers and educators in the Canterbury region.
Initial points of contact are Joy Hawke and Scott Wolfe at firstname.lastname@example.org as the CLA is re-established.
For schools and teachers interested in early bird registering for the 2023 NZLA conference in Invercargill we will support your membership application. NZLA membership and access to the Forum educational journal will be covered in the CLA levies. Levies can be at a personal and a school rate.
Ngā mihi nui.
