Tom Gething and his team at Lancaster School are putting together a very exciting pre-conference on Wednesday, March 27th, for additional delegates who arrive early, providing a chance to interact with local students. The pre-conference will explore the challenges of making social action an authentic and empowering experience, using techniques from the Brazilian theatre director Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed. It should be a memorable and challenging experience. Unfortunately, heads of school will not be able to participate as we have a special pre-conference day for them, running in parallel.
• The cost for the head of school, or their representative if they are unable to attend, is US$700.
• The cost for additional delegates attending the main conference is US$450.
• The cost for additional delegates attending the main conference and pre-conference is US$500.
Conference fees will be added to your school bill automatically upon registration. There is no need to transfer funds or bring money to the conference. The Treasurer will include any conference fees in the statements sent to schools in May 2019.
I am delighted to announce that our third keynote speaker is David Weston of the Teacher Development Trust. You can find out more about him at https://tdtrust.org/.
