Alternative Education National Body New Zealand


Lower South Island

Southern South Island - Region 10





Regional Representative: Lois Conway

A teacher for over 30 years, Lois has been involved with alternative forms of education since 2003, when she helped pioneer a ‘reconsideration of suspension’ programme for Invercargill schools.  Since 2009 she has been directly involved with Alternative Education in her role as Director of the Invercargill Student Support Network.  Her passion is to see students who are marginalised in the education system receive the best teaching and support possible.

As the AE regional representative for the largest geographical area in NZ, Lois is keen to ensure our region’s voice is heard, and that at a national level, Alternative Education receives the support and recognition it deserves.
