Learning outcomes

Participants will:

  • gain an overview of the 5 key competencies of Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

How to get there, and carparking

There are a number of car parking options at the Wellington venue:

  • Hill Street Car Park:
    The Hill Street car park is 100 metres down the hill from the entrance to Guildford Terrace. It is directly under the Catholic Centre. Please note it is Early Bird parking only ($13 per day, cash only). There are 44 casual parks but it does fill quickly so if you want to get a park you will need to arrive early (between 7.30am to 7.45am).
  • Ballantrae Place Car Park:
    The Ballantrae car park is directly under the motorway. The best way to go to this car park is to come down Bowen Street from Tinakori Road and turn left into Ballantrae Place. Car parking here is $16 for the day. You pay by the hour and it appears to be coin operated. Again we recommend you get there as early as possible to get a park. There is a pedestrian walkway that runs from Ballantrae Place to Hill Street, a small climb on the way up but very easy coming down.
