MMEF silent auction at MANZ conference

Dear Supporters of the Maria Montessori Education Foundation

Here’s hoping that the year has started well for you all!

We launched into Module 3 straight after New Year, it’s hard to believe that we’re almost half way through our first course. With plans already underway for the next to commence in June 2011 do keep those inquiries coming to us!

**MMEF Silent Auction at the MANZ Conference

Following the success of our last silent auction at the MANZ Conference in Napier, we’ll be holding another one this year. Come and place your bids on Saturday, Sunday & Monday, the auction will close at 5.45p.m. on Monday 12th April.

To let you into a wee secret, one of the items on offer is a set of 62 flags of the world generously donated by Gonzagarredi (not including the arch).

For anyone not attending the Conference who would like to place a bid, email

We will be selling The Soft Letter Book too this year so see you there!
