The Wagga MITP Implementation Workshop — what a day!

The AEF was very excited when 37 maths teachers from 34 schools turned up at the Wagga Maths in Trades Implementation Workshop recently. There was a serious amount of talking, making of plans, asking of questions and not a little to-ing and fro-ing. We count it a huge success. Thank you everyone for coming along. We hope all goes well for you when you introduce MITP to your students next year. A particular thank you to Nathan Cooper from the RIEP who was a big help to us.
