ADEC 2014 CONFERENCE

We are very pleased to announce that PEREGRINE School in TASMANIA has agreed to host the 2014 ADEC Conference.

The dates for this gathering are Sunday 28th – Tuesday 30th September 2014.

The gathering will start on Sun evening and conclude Tuesday afternoon. Times to be announced later.

I would like to thank Imogen Hunt, the students, other teachers and members of the community for creating this opportunity for us to all meet in their part of the world. Peregrine school is situated in Nicholls Rivulet about 45 kms south of Hobart. It is in a rural setting and cars are the main means of transport. Imogen advises it is wise to hire them early as there can be a demand on hire cars in Tasmania. So for those considering attending it might be worth connecting up early so that we can organise some car sharing and pooling.  The general theme of the meeting will be around PLAY.

ADEC AGM will be held during the meeting.

When they become available we will put more details about the conference on the ADEC website and the ADEC Facebook page.

We hope many of you will be able to join us.
