Event Details

 

Conference for R-12 teachers convened jointly by HASS SA and KMEIA SA with the support of Educators SA CEASA.

 

The conference will run from 8.30am - 5:00pm on Saturday the 30th of March, with a cocktail dinner provided in your registration fee for Friday night the 29th of March (6.00pm - 8.30pm). Both days will be held at Hawthorndene Primary School (map)

It promises to be an exciting weekend! Catering for both the cocktail dinner, and meals on Saturday will be Indigenous-inspired, and we will open the event on Friday night with a traditional smoking ceremony provided by Major Moogy Sumner, who will also be presenting the keynote address on Saturday. There will be performances on the Friday from Milan Dhiiyaan and Torres Strait Islander Uncle Eddie Peters, during lunch on Saturday by Yellaka, and to round out the conference by Corey Theatre

The timetable includes sessions from a variety of educators and Indigenous representatives. Topics include Music; HASS; Drama; STEM; Literacy; Aboriginal Pedagogies; and Indigenous Languages; as well as an introduction to simple, new music, composed in a variety of Aboriginal languages for you to use in your classes right away! There will also be sessions run by representatives of organisations such as Australians Together and the Stronger Smarter Institute as well as representatives from various Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations such as Kaurna, Ngarrindjeri, Adnyamathanha, Wiradjuri, Narrunga and the Torres Strait. The program is available here. All attendees on the Saturday will receive a goodie-bag with a copy of Songs for Aboriginal Studies and Reconciliation, songbook and CD. 

Cocktail Dinner – Friday 29th March: 

This dinner is included free with your registration. It will be an opportunity to mingle with many of the presenters, as well as other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representatives, all while being entertained by some incredible Indigenous Performers and dining on delicious Indigenous-inspired foods.

 Newly commissioned songs and games: 

Between sessions we will run short movement breaks that make use of some of our newly commissioned Indigenous language songs and games. These engaging new resources are aligned to the Australian Curriculum for HASS and Music, as well as the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures Cross Curriculum Priority. On top of that, they’re a fun brain break for you and your students.
