ATS Irlanda 2017 Conference and Teachmeet a success!

It’s over! If you missed it be sure to look out for our upcoming CPD workshops.

Thank you to the Clayton Hotel (formerly the Clarion Hotel) for hosting us.

We would like to thank all of the presenters, just to mention a few:

Paul Collins from the SEC who gave a very interesting talk about Assessment for Leaving Cert and for the new Junior Cycle. Lots of useful information for our participants.

Mary-Elaine Tynan and Sinéad Tuohy from JCT for their very informative presentations on 2 aspects of the new Junior Cycle course.

Ana Sánchez Pérez from Colegio Delibes for her very entertaining and engaging talk on extracting the Socio Linguistic element in our classroom.

The presentations will be sent on to all attendees soon.

We would like to thank our exhibitors, CSS Valencia, Colegio Delibes, ID Languages, Instituto Cervantes, International Books, Learn foreign Language Skills, COGO travel, Yuris Study Cards, Euro Languages College and the Folens education team for their stands and the prizes they donated on the day. This event would not be the same without you all.

We would like to thank our committee members for the time and effort they volunteered to make the day what it was, especially our president Wilma Selvin and our vice-president Kay Macken.

Thank you to our teachmeet presenters for a fantastic group of presentations with lots of new ideas for our attendees to bring back into their classrooms. A great opportunity to see what others are getting up to in their classroom. Presentations and/or resources from the teachmeet will be shared with attendees shortly.

Finally a big thank you to all the teachers who bought a ticket to attend. The association is going from strength to strength and it is all because of you! Keep coming, giving us your feedback and ideas!

Lastly a big welcome to our newest committee members! Great to have you on board! We look forward to having you on the team!
