Term 4 Professional Development Event

The Library of the Early Mind : an exploration of the impact of art and children's literature on our kids, our culture and ourselves

Thursday, Nov. 14th, 3:30pm

2 Pilkington Street


Join us at the John McGlashan College Library for a viewing of the amazing DVD, The Library of the Early Mind, featuring around 40 authors and illustrators talking about their work and the impact that it has. This documentary is especially relevent if you work in a primary school, but other school sectors will also find it very valuable. The DVD has been screened in other SLANZA regions and received rave reviews - so don't miss out on this opportunity!
