Congratulations to our Queensland Chapter on a very successful first state conference, held on 21 July 2018, and kindly hosted by TAFE Southbank.

120 participants attended, and we were very grateful to learn from keynote presenters Prof Lea Waters, Anne Johnstone (Principal, Ravenswood), Warren Symonds (Principal, Mt Barker High School) and Sue Chandler (All Hallows’ School), as well as several workshop presenters who very generously shared their expertise and experience.
