WAECSSA Conference will be held at Crown Towers
Wednesday 19 to Friday 21 August 2020.
WAECSSA is committed to reducing the risk of the spread of COVID-19 in the community. We have been carefully considering the information coming from the State and Federal Governments, Department of Education and health authorities with regards to the recommendations of social distancing particularly in large gatherings of 500 people or more.
We continue to monitor the situation in the longer term with regards to the Conference. The committee is exploring options for providing the Conference in alternate forms if the current situation is extended through to August. We’ll communicate with you as more information comes to hand.
We understand this is a difficult and complex time for all people and we ask that if you require support or have any questions that you contact one of the committee and we will do our best to support you together.
Members are entitled to claim travel expenses for Conference. Forms are found on the members page.
Professional Learning Registrations
The WAECSSA PLIS Manager must be notified of cancellation of registration to any organised WAECSSA event in writing via email to [email protected] 14 days prior to the event unless otherwise specified. There will be no refund after this date.
If there has been a death in the family or extreme illness then consideration will be given to a partial refund as long as the request is sent in writing via email to the [email protected] within 7 days following the event accompanied by evidence, such as a doctor’s certificate.
Use of School Purchase Card for Conference Registration
In all instances the committee recommends you consult the Department of Education’s Expenditure on Hospitality Policy available on IKON.
Purchasing a 2-day Full Package, School Officer Day or Regional & Remote Day
When purchased as a package, the registration cost covers the professional learning program. The Sundowner and Dinner are subsidised by WAECSSA through the sponsorship the association receives.
In this instance, you are able to use your school purchase card to pay for registration.
You must enter the value of the event you are attending in the School’s Gift Register – Sundowner $70.00 and/or Dinner $140.00. This should then be signed by the Principal.
Purchasing a single Day Ticket (Thursday or Friday only)
This ticket does not include the Sundowner or Dinner in the cost. School purchase cards should only be used for the professional learning ticket. To add the Sundowner or Dinner, a separate registration must be completed with a personal credit card.
Purchasing an individual Sundowner or Dinner Ticket
Purchasing these tickets is a personal expense and should not be incurred by a school or the Department.
In this instance, you must use a personal credit card.
