There was so much on offer at the recent EduTECH conference in Sydney, not the least a chance to win a holiday to north Queensland by visiting the School News stand in the main exhibition area. Thanks to everyone who dropped by for a chat and to pick up a free copy of the magazine. We met many amazing people and it’s always exciting to get updated on the latest thinking and technology in education. Now, the moment you have all been waiting for – we have a winner! Congratulations to Audrey Mason, from Le Perouse Public School in New South Wales. You have won three nights accommodation in a two-bedroom apartment at Argosy On the Beach in Clifton Beach, Cairns.
