Event description

Description

2019 marks our 20-year anniversary since our doors first opened in Brisbane and the inaugural year for RGQ's Educators' Series. On Day 1 of our Educators' Series, we'll be running a 3-hour Master Class, which consists of three stages:


Stage 1 - Understanding Current Practice

  • Group Work & Brainstorming: What are the various elements into how Sustainability and Environmental Responsibility is practiced in the work/play/school environment?

Stage 2 - Understanding RGQ

  • How can RGQ help centres and schools work towards meeting the NQS element 3.2.3 (Environmentally Responsible), plus achieving Outcome 2 (Children are connected with and contribute to their world) of the Early Years Learning Framework?

Stage 3 - Putting Resources into New Practice

  • How can we take the learning deeper and integrate it into everyday practice?

  • Using a mixture of standard RGQ materials plus everyday discards from around the home (e.g. cereal boxes, bottle top lids, plastic containers, etc.), we'll workshop Creative Reuse ideas to create samples that you can take back to the school or play room.


All delegates will be gifted with exclusive discounts:


RGQ Mail Order

  • 15% off on orders that are placed on the day of the Master Class (can be scheduled for delivery within the next 6 months of the Educators' Series)

  • 10% off on orders that are placed within 2 weeks of the Educators' Series (can be scheduled for delivery within the next 6 months of the Educators' Series)


RGQ Shop Floor

  • 15% off on purchases made, as delegates, during the Educators' Series (i.e. March 14 to 16).

  • For 1 hour after each Masterclass (i.e. 6pm to 7pm and 1pm to 2pm) we'll have a 'private shopping' hour for attendees to explore the warehouse and use their 15% discount.

  • Plus a surprise bonus for signing up to our Loyalty Programme during the Series.





Our Master Classes will be facilitated by Wendy Small, Professional Development Workshop Facilitator.
