Term 3 is coming to an end… What a strange few months this term has been!
As the return to school for students is now scheduled for the 25th October, the NAFT Annual Conference, on Saturday 23rd October, will be held via Zoom.
We would have loved the opportunity to offer it face to face so that we could mingle as we are desperate to socialise again…but it isn’t possible.
There will be no clash with French HSC marking as NESA has pushed back the HSC to Nov 9.
The conference will include our AGM.
The theme for 2021 is: Worldwide Collaborations in Languages
This year we are delighted to announce that we have an impressive list of guest speakers.
2 Keynote speakers from England have accepted to present during their night or very early morning for us!
