I’ve been attending the Semi-Permanent conference in Sydney for the last few years as a supervising teacher on excursion, taking my year 12 students up for one or two days each time, but never being able to take in the entire conference. This year however, I’ve booked a full 3 day ticket, and I’m super pumped!

Semi-Permanent Sydney

I’ve always had a fantastic time at each event, and this year I can’t wait to just soak it all up without having to worry about transporting 15 adolescents around beforehand and afterward and making sure they all eat their lunch and pay attention and turn up when they’re supposed to… Just have to remember all that for myself!
