Food/Drink/Parking

Please bear in mind the large numbers attending and the 30 minute lunch break – where possible we recommend bringing a packed lunch, particularly if you need to travel between sites.

Where possible, teachers are encouraged to car pool from their home school to moderation meetings to lessen the impact on parking. This is particularly important when attending Launceston College where parking will be limited.

Some Schools/Colleges will arrange for pre-ordering of food or a voucher system – please consult with your leadership team for school-specific arrangements.
