Farewell 2020 and Happy New Year for 2021

What a year it has been! Because of the pandemic, I have been unable to run any face-to-face workshops since March. Then in November NESA deregistered all workshops across the state. It is with a heavy heart that I have reached the decision to close this business. The website will remain for one further year, to enable all previous workshop participants to access materials. Thank you to everyone who ever worked with me these past 8 years. It has been extremely rewarding to work with dedicated teachers across New South Wales, who are giving children the gifts of speaking another language and increased intercultural understanding. I am looking forward to working full-time in the classroom in 2021 and hope that 2021 brings new adventures and rich learning experiences for you all.
