Back to School Day 2018
Saturday 24 February - 8.30am - 1.15pm
Venue to be confirmed
A great event for brushing off the cobwebs and kick-starting the new year! Lots of inspiring, fresh and innovative ideas to take back to your classroom.
Two concurrent sessions run for teachers, covering activities for the early years (Prep-Yr4), middle years (Yr5-8), ideas for the music classroom and choral repertoire, plus plenty of ideas for teacher new to music.
There will also be a number of traders in attendance, providing a great opportunity to purchase some excellent resources at special prices.
