From Principals
One:
"Just wanted to say a massive congratulations for the superb TOD on Friday.
The speakers were awesome and the sessions were valuable for practical things our teachers could take away. A great balance of inspiration and practicality.
The details and programme and communication was all superb. Super well done Paula.
The systems organisation was like clockwork Nancy. Well done. Thank you."

Two:
"You must be thrilled with the way the day went on Friday. Thanks heaps for all that organisation, many hours of work I bet.
Not only were the speakers great, but the fact that teachers learnt so much from each other in the workshops was awesome. Some of our teachers want to present some more. Isn't that fantastic?"

Three:
"A huge thanks from us all here. That was one of the best Teacher Only Day's we have ever had. The keynote speakers were excellent, the taster sessions were really informative and the whole staff got a lot from the day. All thanks to your wonderful pre-planning and preparation."

From Teachers via email
"Today was fabulous!!!! Are you able to give me the last guest speaker's contact details? I would like to make contact with him if possible. Thanks"
