Future proofing your child

Howick College principal Iva Ropati.

Howick College is hosting an information evening presented by Karen Tui Boyes for parents and caregivers of children who attend schools and early learning centres in the Howick Coast Kāhui ako, a Community of Learning comprising eight local schools.

“Our children are growing up in a very different world to the one we grew up in and the jobs they will do may not even exist yet,” a school spokesperson said.

“The focus of the evening will be on giving parents and caregivers the tools to help their children develop the skills they will need to succeed as adults.”

The evening will be hosted in the Bill Dimery Performing Arts Centre on Thursday June 3 from 7pm to 8.30pm.

Presenter Karen Tui Boyes is a champion for lifelong learning across nations, industries and organisations. She is founder, head facilitator and CEO of Spectrum Education. Karen is an author and the creator of the Teachers Matter Magazine, Teachers Matter Conference, Kids Matter Conference, Study Smart Workshops and the Habits of Mind Bootcamp.

She is also CEO of Spectrum Education, Affiliate Director of the Institute for the Habits of Mind, NZ Educator of the Year 2017 and 2014, NZ Speaker of the Year 2019 and 2013 and NZ Business Woman of the Year 2001.
