Invitation to attend
Adolescent Success (formerly the Middle Years of Schooling Association—MYSA) invites all those committed to education, growth and development of young adolescents to the Inaugural Asia Pacific Conference for Adolescent Success (APCAS), to be held from 13 – 14 September 2014 at the Australian International School in Singapore.
Teachers of middle years students in all schools face specific and unique challenges, they cater for a wide range of student needs and abilities and we know from current brain research that engagement in learning is particularly important during adolescent years.
We encourage teachers and educators from the Asia Pacific region to share their middle school practice and tell their stories so that we may all learn from each other.
The conference committee invite you to share challenging and rewarding practices for 21st Century learners as we celebrate Global Students – Real Solutions.
We look forward to your support and participation.
