A new ADEC logo has been designed and is in provisional use. It will be presented at the ADEC AGM being held on 27th September 2016 at Koonwarra Village School and a decision made as to its use in the future. The logo is attached here for your comments.
Hope to see many of you at the ADEC 2016 Conference. Early bird registration closes at the end of August so there is still time to take advantage of this.

Faye Berryman and Philip O’Caroll, have published the story of their founding of the Fitzroy Community School in 1976 and their discoveries over the years since then about children, parents, education, schooling and life.
The title of the book is Fitzroy Community School.
It is published by Fitzroy Programs Pty Ltd, Melbourne, 2015.
Faye and Philip have each written their story and though it is about FCS as Philip wrote, ” the book is mostly about the state of education in Australia today and what it could be in the future.”
Philip is keen to spread the word about the book and hopes that as well as the fascinating story of this specific school, the broader premise of the book will be of interest to many of us involved in the lives of children and working to create education which enables their lives to be rich and fulfilling.
