Convention 2018

This year, the STA Annual Convention has been moved to Wednesday, August 29th. Another big change is that the venue has been moved, and we will now be meeting at Prairieland Park. This venue change will allow all 3500 teachers to be in one space and parking will be more convenient and, perhaps more importantly, free.

Also, this year at the end of the convention... a party!

We will enjoy some sunshine, beverages, and the amazing Jack Semple Band to help us get the year off to a great start. In terms of the program, the STA is pleased to partner with the newly-formed Gonski Institute for Equity in Education (University of New South Wales).

The Gonski Institute has attracted the brightest intellects in global education. This partnership will help us continue to build our relationships with visionaries such as Simon Breakspear and Pasi Sahlberg, as well as forge a new relationship with the iconic Andy Hargreaves.
