Stay with The Locals – Billeting Option
If you are interested in being billeted, WATESOL has a number of members who are willing to host delegates from out of town. Available for the evenings of Thursday 10 July, Friday 11 July and Saturday 12 July. We would especially like to welcome students and teachers who have limited funding to attend the conference to register their interest in being billeted with a local. Please contact Cathie Cahill by email to ccahill@tearo.school.nz by Friday 30 May 2014 if you would like to take up this opportunity.
