Conference 2019

        We are very pleased to welcome Canadian presenters and celebrated children's book authors Marie-Louise Gay and Barbara Reid to PETA this year. Every guest will attend a half day session from each presenter, either Barbara followed by Marie-Louise or vice versa depending on your selection. Both author's will speak on inspiring the author's in your classroom and fostering a love of reading and writing. They will speak on bridging connections between reading, writing and illustrating. We hope to offer something a little different this year for the elemntary teachers of Nova Scotia and day of worthwhile, interesting teacher development. Conference day is October 25th, 2019 and will be taking place at the Cineplex Theatres in Bayers Lake.

Registration Information

      Registration will open early September at the NSTU page. Please see the union rep for your school if you have any questions on how to register. Conferences fees are $90 for term and permanent teachers, $60 for substitutes and students. Please register early as our conference often fills within a few days. Please understand, once the conference is full that means we physicaly do not have another seat in the venue so please do not email asking special permission to attend. Please also consider coordinating with friends or colleagues so you register for the same sessions as we will not be able to change your schedule once the conference in full. If you have any issue with the registration please contact the NSTU as we do not have any way of assisting with their website.

Registration closes in October. You have until this date to ask for a refund.
