The format of this event will be similar to the highly successful inaugural Hands on Literacy Conference (HOL) held at the Australian International School, Singapore in 2008. Conference workshops will showcase our collective expertise and be peer-to-peer explorations of best and next practice.

The cost is 125 SGD for the day (about US$90).

Registration opens September 20th. Note that the Registration Program is NOT a Google Site, so anyone should be able to access it. The link will be placed here on September 20th.

We welcome overseas participants -- and there will be a social event on the Saturday night for visitors to Singapore.

So for those of you coming from overseas, you could plan on visiting different school libraries Monday daytime and then join the afternoon workshop (and social event in the evening). Watch the website for more details before booking any flights!

Note also that some of our network members are willing to offer home-stay accommodation for those on tight budgets.

Also note (re payment) that overseas participants can pay on the day -- in Singapore dollars -- though bank transfer is also an option.
