The organising committee of the New Zealand Primary Schools Teachers’ Conference has issued this statement:
“It is with regret that we announce that the New Zealand Primary Teachers Conference will not be running this year, in April 2020.
“The conference committee have had to make this tough decision based on a number of factors, including very low registration numbers. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. The conference committee will be meeting to discuss possibilities for the conference moving forward. We will be contacting everyone personally who had expressed interest in attending, sponsoring this event, or submitted an abstract to speak, however if you have any questions please send these through to our office manager firstname.lastname@example.org, who will make sure your needs are met.
“We are disappointed to have to make this announcement, and we thank everyone for the understanding and support.”
