INTERNATIONAL KIDS TEACHING KIDS COASTAL CONFERENCE, Caloundra 2010

The Kids Teaching Kids Conference is underway lighting up the Caloundra Events Centre. Conference organisers did a great job kicking things off with respectful acknowledgement of the traditional owners of the land in Caloundra, the Gubbi Gubbi tribe. Then there were the antics of the Postal Pirates and some well known comedians.

Participating in the conference were schools from Tasmania all the way to the Torres Strait. Some words  that seemed to sum up the underlying philosophy of the conference were about sustainability education requiring head (learn), heart (care) and hands (act). And a terrific quote, "If you always do what you've always done then you'll always get what you've already got", Can't argue with that!

If your school hasn't yet pariticpated in one of these conferences I strongly suggest that you put it on your radar and plan to come to the next one. Wonderfully organised and just magic for the participating students.
