Welcome back to the 2011 school year and another exciting year of Geography!
Firstly I would like to acknowledge the hard work and contributionsof the State Council over the past year and thank the departing members. I would also like to say thank you to all who were reelected and to those that attended the AGM.
It has been a very interesting vacation season and commencement to the New Year. In Geography Teachers’ Land in January AGTA held its much anticipated conference in South Australia whichwas the culmination of several years of planning. From all reports it was a highly successful event with over 30 delegates attending from Queensland. In fact delegate numbers overall far exceeded expectations and sessions were interesting and informative. I’m surethat all who attended benefited from the experience of extending their professional connections and learning.
It was also at the AGTA conference that that second significant pointoccurred – Tim Costello has kindly agreed to become the AGTA Patron for the next 3 years. I’m sure that you would all agree that Tim Costello’s work has provided him with a great depth of knowledge, not just of social justice issues, but also of the dynamic relationships and interdependences of the world’s natural and human systems.
