If your school has open-access fibre or will have by June 2010, we want to hear from you. We’re holding executive briefings with Principals of schools that may qualify to participate in the National Education Network trial extension, beginning 15 February. We encourage you to register your interest now.
Invitation to participate in the NEN trial
In collaboration with the Ministry of Education, we’ve issued an invitation to schools that we think already have access to fibre through an open-access provider or that expect to have access by 30 June 2010, to take part in the NEN extension.
Executive briefings with Principals of schools that may qualify for the trial will be held 15 February – 2 March in five locations across the country. These briefings will discuss the goals of the trial and explain what the implications might be for participating schools. Briefings are being held 12.30 to 2.00pm at the following locations/dates:
- North Shore, Monday 15 February
- Christchurch, Tuesday 16 February
- Wellington, Wednesday 17 February
- Nelson, Monday 22 February
- Palmerston North, Tuesday 2 March
A light lunch will be served from midday at each briefing. Visit our schools information page for more details and to register for a meeting:
NEN School Survey
To register your interest in participating in the NEN trial extension, please complete the schools survey by Friday 26 February 2010. This will provide us with the necessary information to proceed with detailed planning for connecting your school to the NEN.
