State Conference

ETAQ's state conference will be held on Saturday 17 August at Lourdes Hill College, 86 Hawthorne Road, Hawthorne. We are excited to announce our keynote presenters will be Anna Funder and Mary Lou Rasmussen, ANU, Canberra.

Theme: Journeys of Joy and Justice.

This conference aims to provide a platform for teachers to share, discuss and ignite inspiration within the endlessly changing landscape of English curriculum and learning. The conference will focus on how texts, teachers and learning experiences can bring both joy and justice to all students, every day.

Conditions of registration

1.      Change of persons registered - sometimes schools may need to substitute one teacher for another on their registrations. This is fine but please notify the change to the Administration Officer so that we can prepare the appropriate Certificate of Participation and Individual program.

2. Many schools prefer to receive an invoice for registrations and pay on that rather than pay at the time of registration. We are happy to offer this convenience, but it must be recognised that registration commits you to payment. See also the Cancellation Policy.

3.Cancellation Policy –If you register for face-to-face attendance and have to cancel your physical attendance, the following will apply:

  1. Cancel your registration by 31 July and receive a refund of your full registration fee OR transfer over to the online attendance group and receive a refund of the face-to-face component of your registration fee.
  2. From 1 August to 12 August, you will receive a refund of the face-to-face component of your registration fee and be transferred to online registration.
  3. From 13 August no refund is possible.

Early bird registration closes on 31 July.

An array of 26 different workshops is on offer across 3 workshop sessions with 16 or 17 workshops available in each session; please note that which ones actually run will depend on the pattern of registrations. A one-page summary of the offerings is available at summary of workshops.
