PLAYWORK GATHERING in Australia

aimed specially at OSHC educators and playwork friends



WHAT IS IT:

Playwork is both a profession and a specific way of working with children which is framed within an ethical policy called 'The Playwork Principles'. Although relatively new in Australia, a Playwork approach to working with children is gaining popularity, especially in the OSHC sector.

This first Gathering in Australia will provide you with an introduction to Playwork Theory, Playwork Principles and Playwork Skills, all in an OSHC context, with a mix of presentations and workshops for you to choose from. It will be delivered by the experienced British Playworker, Marc Armitage, with Kylie Keane, educational leader at the recently 'outstanding rated' FOOHSC in Canberra ACT, and Angus Gorrie, program manager at the award winning Camp Hill OSHC in Brisbane QLD, plus a number of guest presenters.


WHAT WILL IT PROVIDE:

The event will take place in a tented camp location on the banks of Lake Moogerah in QLD. Presentations and workshop topics include: the Playwork Principles, exceeding A&R with Playwork, using tools, structure building, fire and food, loose parts & Playwork, the Play Cycle, auditing your Playwork space, Risk Benefit in Playwork, and more (topics subject to final program).


WHEN IS IT:

The main event begins at 9:30am on Saturday 8th June and ends at 2:00pm on Sunday 9th June 2019.

Participants are welcome to join us and stay over on the Friday evening before (food will be available to buy on Friday evening but is not included in your ticket price).


WHERE IS IT:

The event will take place at Camp QLD Lake Moogerah, 170 Ski Zone Road, Moogerah QLD 4309
