Another successful conference

The 2015 Annual Community Languages Conference and Training Day was held at the University of Sydney, last 19 September. About 400 people attended a very informative day. Teachers from NSW, Western Australia and Victoria could choose from 30 workshops with two of our speakers visiting from New Zealand and one as far as Spain. The workshops were a ll a great success and our experts came from the Department of education, the Board of Studies, Macquarie University, a range of NSW community language school teachers and, our own Education Officer.
One of the highlights of the day was our keynote speaker, Professor Joseph Lo Bianco who spoke at length about the importance of language learning and its place in our multicultural society. His presentation kept everyone hanging off every word he spoke and we are grateful to him for providing us all with such an informative presentation.
