Important Message For LSA Conference Attendees

Here is the latest from the LSA Committee who have been working all weekend to come up with an alternative to our members entirely missing out on our valuable pd.

The LSA Annual State Conference scheduled for 26th and 27th March will not be proceeding in its traditional method of delivery. We are arranging to deliver as much of the content as possible online, so that our teachers are still able to access updates and new teaching and learning strategies. 

We will provide further details to all those who had registered on Wednesday 18th March. 

Given the unprecedented nature of the current situation we know that we can rely on our wonderful Members to give us the time we need to sort out the details and put new plans in place. In the meantime, please cancel whatever arrangements you had made to attend the Conference in person.

If you had accommodation booked at Rydges, please phone them to cancel. We have been assured you will not be charged a cancellation fee.

We hope that all our Members remain in good health.
