Our inaugural national conference, Scaffolding for success was held in Adelaide on 1-2 October. It was indeed a great success, thanks to the 60 members who attended. We had members from the Kimberley in WA, Maningrida in NT, Nyangatjatarra College in the NT, Ingham in Queensland, as well as other parts of Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland, ACT, Victoria and New South Wales. As one member wrote: Thanks for organising a valuable conference. It was great to meet other AL teachers, share experiences with them & give each other encouragement. We had some great workshops, both theoretical and practical, and did lots of talking. Videos of some presentations will be posted on the website in due course.
