My Oprah Moment - Education - It's More than the Three Rs

By Yvette Vignando - 30th October 2010

Oprah Show Meetup - The Education System

When:  1 November 2010

Time:    6.30 p.m.

Where: La Casa Ristorante, 271 Lyons Road, Russell Lea

Bookings: http://oprahsydneymeetup.eventbrite.com/

Only very few tickets left - yes seriously - it was sold out and a few more tickets have literally just been released. This is the first time Oprah fans have come together in this way. If you attend this event, you'll be part of our own version of the Oprah Show Sydney-Style!

If you have a favourite clip or Oprah moment or an issue you would like discussed - post the link on the Facebook page and we'll play it and discuss it on the night.

It seems education is a hot topic all over the world.  Oprah raised the issue on her show and has invited people around the world to take the disucssion up in their own cities - 1075 Meet-ups and counting!

Education in Australia and education "league" tables is hotly discussed all over the country. The recent issue of the drafting of an Australian National Curriculum is the latest to attract the attention and disagreement of educators, policy-makers and parents.

We have taken up the call from The Oprah Show & are organising a meetup on 1st November.

The Oprah team have prepared some information on Education to start off discussion.

We'll be viewing some clips and discussing this issue from the Australian perspective.

It will be a great night for fans of Oprah and people who want to openly discuss the Australian education system - what it is, how to improve it and more.

Nancy Georges will be hosting the event, with key speakers

    *  Yvette Vignando (that's me) publisher of www.happychild.com.au - speaking about Emotional Intelligence in education
    *  Mei Tan of Brasserie Bread will be speaking about the importance of teaching children skills other than maths and reading by sharing his insight and experience of their Baking Classes.

Carm & Tony at La Casa Ristorante have kindly allowed us to meet at their wonderful restaurant.

This is a free event, you will only have to pay for your drinks.

Goodie Bags for all attendees!
