QLD SALT Gathering

QLD SALT Gathering

A wonderful opportunity for Principals of CSA Member schools to bring relevant staff to visit Glasshouse Christian College. We will be learning more about, as well as observing, the ‘real life’ learning of the DeLorean Project. We will also be exploring how data is used effectively at Glasshouse Christian College.

Event Information

Registration at this members only event will include catering (morning tea and lunch). Additionally, we will be supporting the students at Glasshouse Christian College, as the Hospitality Department will be using our visit for their Year 12 assessment. The students will be catering and serving a sit-down 3-course lunch for us. As the lunch is an assessment and the students will need to start planning from the start of Term 2, the school have asked to have confirmed numbers by Friday, 22 April (end of week 1 of term 2). To support the provision of Morning Tea and the Lunch, there will be a catering charge of $40 per person +GST.
