The teachers conference on the 21st September was a great success. The Wilderness Foundation at Chatham Green provided us with a great venue. A diverse range of workshops were provided by Essex Country Parks, The Wilderness Foundation, Coalhouse Fort, RHS Hyde Hall, Essex Wildlife Trust, Lee Valley Regional Park, Essex Outdoors, FSC Epping Forest and Wat Tyler. A huge thank you to Jenna, Louise and Michelle for their organising and chasing of payments and all the workshop leaders for giving their time and expertise. We got great feedback from teachers who attended, quotes included:
“Same place, same time next year please. It is very rare I go on a day’s development and enjoy every minute.”
“Thank-you I had an amazing day and have acquired some good ideas.”
“Very practical and full of actual ideas to use.”
“Very informative and enjoyable. I feel inspired to go back and try some activities for myself.”
“Some very inspiring speakers.”
