BOOKING PLACES AT A CONFERENCE
Bookings for a conference are usually made by a teacher or other representative from a school, and students attend conference with their school group accompanied by a supervising teacher. The school is invoiced for the number of students and staff attending – with one free staff place provided for every twelve (12) students. Extra staff, and staff places if less that twelve accompanying students are charged at the student rate. Unaccompanied staff attending for PD are charged at the PD rate of $195 per day. [If schools require payment from students or parents for attendance, these payments are made to the school]
Please note that we cannot accept bookings for unaccompanied students, and all students attending are required have a supervising teacher, or parent, with them. This is a workplace health and safety issue, as we do not have the necessary staff to provide supervision of students at the conference, or during meal breaks. [If a school is not attending, and a student from that school wishes to attend independently, they can do so, but they must be accompanied by a supervising adult who is charged at the student rate, and who makes the booking]
Note that most schools require their full school uniform to be worn to the conference, and we believe this makes for a very professional and smart appearance by students representing your school.
