Thanks for your very kind thanks!
We had a great time, and the workshops were a wonderful way to get to know
people before the conference began. Partnering with Miromaa and VACL and
also including the staff from Far West Languages Centre as trainers was a
very positive experience, and we look forward to doing it all.
Meantime, we're still recovering too!
all the best
Team RNLD (Margaret, Donna, Alison, Flick, Michael)
