Fwd: Calling all youth group leaders and educators wishing to add penguins to their activities

I hope you already have a copy of the education resource launched by the West Coast Penguin Trust last year, but if not, please let me know and I'll get one to you ASAP!
In order to help you make the most of it, the resource author, Zoe Watson, will be leading a fun workshop, along with the Trust's Ranger, Reuben Lane, and you are invited.
Why not put it in your diary now?!  Thursday, 10th December.  Come along to St Mary's School at 3.30pm for some inspiration to share with the children you teach, lead and care for, as well as some delicious afternoon tea!
A flier is attached and copied below and we'd be grateful if you could pass this email on to anyone we may have missed who may be interested. 
Please let me or Zoe know you'll be coming, so we can ensure we are prepared, particularly with afternoon tea!
We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on 10th December, if not before.
Kind regards
PS If you can't make the 10th, but are keen to come, Zoe will also be running the workshop in Greymouth on Wednesday 9th December, at Grey Main School (Tech Centre, 3.30-5pm).  Again, please just let us know.
