Is your school prepared to host a regional final? Regional finals can be held in school halls, libraries or double rooms. On average regional finals allow for 30-40 children plus families and teachers to a total of 50-70 pax for each section. They begin at 9.30am and run until approx. 2.30pm. The Arts Unit offers relief payment of $442, covering the coordinating teacher-relief. TAU also supplies a modest catering allowance of $108 for school to provide cut lunch to visiting announcer/scorer and morning/afternoon snacks for students and guests: tea, coffee, juice and biscuits, for example. The Arts Unit will supply all wordlists and score-sheets as well as an announcer. This year, for the first time, we are pleased to include as a gift to host schools, a 5-month, school-wide subscription to Macquarie Online Dictionary and Thesaurus as well as a set of their new 3-6 Spelling Workbooks.
