COMMUNITY EVENT | in conversation with Pasi Sahlberg.

Save the date: Friday 3rd December, 5-8pm (local venue TBC)

We are very excited to announce our first ever fundraising event featuring the wonderful and legendary, Pasi Sahlberg, a Finnish Educator, Scholar and Author of ‘Let the children play: how more play will save our schools and help children thrive’. He is the deputy director and research director at the Gonski Institute for Education at UNSW. To say we are thrilled to have him is an understatement!

On Friday 3rd December, Pasi will be talking to us about:

The Future of Education in Australia. At this event you’ll get a chance to meet the local team bringing Green Mountain Community School to life and get up to speed on where the project is at.

To make sure this event is accessible for everyone:

  • Tickets will be at sliding scale prices - you can choose the investment that best suits your budget.

  • It will be family friendly - children are very welcome (of course!) and storytime and seasonal craft activities will be available to keep them busy.

  • Light refreshments will be on offer.

*This will be a Covid Safe event

The team are so looking forward to bringing this event and our community together and hope to galvanise support and excitement around the potential that Green Mountain Community School represents for our local area.

We may be in touch a little more frequently in November as we share the details of this event. In the meantime, please save the date in your calendar.
