EC Cape Town had the great opportunity of hosting South Africa’s very first EFL conference for teachers on Saturday 16th July. 84 teachers and 16 Directors of Studies and Assistant Directors of Studies from 13 EduSA (Education South Africa) attended this day which was jam-packed with workshops all headed by local EFL professionals, competitions and a magnificent and fun-filled prize-giving. Each teacher attended 3 workshops which were selected when registering and the feedback was brilliant.
Pearson Education sponsored the teacher goodies bags which were filled with resources and materials for each delegate as well as awarding the schools that helped organise the event a magnificent school pack. Pearson also sponsored 21 gift packs which teachers had to win through competitions and raffles and the events’ lunch which was independently catered for and was thoroughly enjoyed. Oxford University Press sponsored 12 x gift packs Cambridge University Press sponsored the mid-day refreshments. Thanks to the generous efforts of these 3 publishers each delegate walked away with fantastic resources.
All in all a terrific day of education, networking and fun was had by all. A big thank you to all the Directors of Studies and Assistant Directors of Studies that worked so hard to make it all happen, EduSA for their support, the publishers for taking part with so much enthusiasm and of course the teachers, for whom this day was dedicated. We hope that this is the start of more fabulous EFL seminars and conferences.
