  1. Thanks for that posting Sheridan. It was a small cohort :- 8 participants (teachers and OTs) came from SA, VIC &Queensland and NSW this year. The small group meant that we could really get into some really good conversations…..especially when it came to discussing the videos brought in for discussion.
