Please remember to list all those teaching History in your school on your membership form. We often have people asking for us to check if their school is a member as they do not receive emails from us, and this is due to us not knowing that they teach at that school. If you have changed schools and not let us know, then please contact us so we can change your details. Finally, if you have moved schools, please remember to change your details on your Members Area profile. At the end of July we will once be doing an audit of this Area and deactivating accounts of those people whose schools are no longer financial members.
The latest newsletter from the National and Regional Facilitators is now available online. This has been uploaded in the side bar to the right under the heading Curriculum Newsletters.
