The New Zealand Catholic Education Convention, in the past, takes place once every three years. Due to COVID-19 we have not gathered since 2018. The 2024 Convention will bring together over 850 delegates—educators, principals, school trustees, proprietors, Bishops, priests and a range of representatives of our national Catholic education system.
Convention seminars give presenters a chance to mix with professionals and educationalists in a stimulating environment. Seminars are one hour ten minutes long and have access to a full suite of audio and visual technology.
We invite you to complete this application to present a seminar. We are looking for 15 high quality and engaging seminars that match the theme of the Convention, Tūhono Whakapono: One Faith Community or themes relevant to New Zealand Catholic education today.
The Convention seminars will be categorised under four streams:
- Catholic school board governance
- Catholic special character
- Religious Education and the wider curriculum
- The Church today
The National Catholic Education Convention planning committee will make the final decision on acceptance of abstracts.
