Hello & welcome to the new year
Isn’t it great to belong to a community with others that value & further democratic education for children.  To nurture this community ADEC holds an annual conference so ideas can be shared and the community enlivened.
The 2018 conference is being hosted by Pine Community School in Brisbane on 28-30 September.  Mark the dates in the calendar so you don’t miss out; because it won’t be the same without you.
We will spend the weekend thinking, talking, listening and being “community, connection and celebration”.
Look out for further information about the weekend in emails, on the ADEC website and facebook page.  Share this invitation to attend with your school community, colleagues and students.
