This week’s guest post is from Mel Cashen. I am currently a Grade 5/6 Teacher at Lightning Reef Primary School.

The Student Conference Series is breaking new ground in flattening classrooms. The Student Conference Series is a presentation series dedicated to students presenting topics they are passionate about to a larger audience.
Each week students are scheduled to present on different topics from Minecraft to Fjord Ponies. The concept for Students Conferences first came from Global 2 blogger, Ben Gallagher. He and Mel Cashen had organised a year 6 student from his class at Meredith Primary School to speak to her class at Lightning Reef in Bendigo about woodworking skills. Introduce your students to SuperClubs Plus.
