President’s Welcome

Dear SA-NT Colleagues 

I am thrilled to extend a warm welcome to new and continuing members of our wonderful SA/NT Chapter of Educate Plus. Your association with Educate Plus speaks volumes about your dedication to educational Advancement and your commitment to professional growth, and we are delighted to have you as part of our community! 

As we pass the midway point in Term 1, I cannot help but feel a sense of excitement for the opportunities that lie ahead. The energy and enthusiasm that permeated our Chapter Committee Planning Day in January set a promising tone for the year and we look forward to an exciting program of activities and events.   

This year, we have a passionate and dedicated committee of 15 people, representing 14 diverse schools and universities across SA-NT:  

In addition to welcoming new members, we also acknowledge the incredible contribution of departing 2023 committee members, Janine Atkinson and Steve Eden, and of our formidable Past President, Ana Gozalo, whose role in growing and shaping our Chapter has been significant.  

In February, we continued to foster connections and collaboration through our termly Coffee Catch Ups, with four venues across Adelaide. These gatherings provided invaluable opportunities for networking, idea sharing, and relationship building.  

Looking forward, we have an exciting Professional Development session, Personal Branding and Passion, lined up at Westminster School on Wednesday 20 March from 4.45pm. I hope you will join us as we focus on self, and how each of us can find and develop our passions and purpose.   

As members of Educate Plus, we are part of a vibrant and dynamic community dedicated to advancing education and enriching the lives of students. Our association provides a platform for collaboration, professional development, and advocacy, ensuring that we stay at the forefront of innovation and excellence in education. 

Thank you for being part of the journey with us so far this year. If you have any ideas or suggestions for future events, or would be interested to host an event at your school (and perhaps showcase something you are particularly proud of), please don’t hesitate to get in touch.   

I look forward to meeting you at during the year.
