WISE UP Conference

Four members of our staff who are working in Wellington Colleges were able to attend the WISE UP conference in Auckland during the last school holidays.  WISE UP, which is an acronym for “Workers ISchools Educate and Unlock Potential”, was a two day event that facilitated seminars and workshops from various professionals around New Zealand, including the Minister of Social Development,  Hon. Anne Tolley and other key note speakers.  The conference, which was attended by many Social Workers and Youth Workers in schools, was also a great opportunity to network with other organisations and share ideas about ways we can “educate and unlock potential” with our rangatahi in Wellington.
