Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, GTA regrets that we have had to postpone the GTA NSW & ACT Annual Conference scheduled for May 21 – 23 2020.
This is based on advice from the Australia Government against organised, non-essential gatherings of large groups in response to COVID-19. Several schools have issued rules that staff are not permitted to attend Professional Development courses. This impacts on not only our attendees but also on our presenters and exhibitors.
As we continue to wait for announcements regarding the health risks involved, the conference will be postponed to Term 3 2020. This is all dependent on advice from health authorities as it becomes available. Once we have confirmed dates, GTA will send a campaign out as soon as possible.
In the meantime, GTA NSW & ACT continues to offer support for Geography teachers through our website, journal, webinars and social media accounts.
Thank you for your support and understanding in these unpredictable times.
Lorraine Chaffer – Conference Convener
