Description

We are thrilled to be organising an afternoon of professional learning for our principals, senior leaders and SENCos in Cluster 7. Dr. Tony Fernando will be presenting “The Science of Happiness” and Associate Professor, Brigid McNeill will be discussing the research and success behind “A Better Start” science challenge thus far. The science and research behind both Dr. Fernando and Associate Professor McNeill’s work is highly relevant to our schools and we are lucky to have secured such distinguished academics to present to us.

Tony is a PSYCHIATRIST and a SENIOR LECTURER in Psychological Medicine at the University of Auckland. He obtained his medical degree from the University of the Philippines and his psychiatry and sleep training at the University of Pennsylvania. He has been awarded multiple teaching awards by medical students and the Faculty of Medicine in Auckland.

Dr. Fernando researches the SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS and runs courses and workshops on MINDFULNESS and COMPASSION for doctors and medical students (which are always oversubscribed).

Associate Professor, Brigid McNeill is from the University of Canterbury and is one of the lead researchers for E Tipu e Rea – A Better Start National Science Challenge. A Better Start is the National Science Challenge working to help children, teenagers, their whanau and family achieve the best possible start in life. The challenges aim to find practical, evidence-based solutions that make a measurable difference for tamariki. The Successful Learning theme within the Challenge is led by Associate Professor Brigid McNeill.
