CISC 28th Annual Conference
BACS Payment Reference: G200
The CISC annual conference is well known as one of the friendliest and best attended conferences in the educational calendar. Places at the conference are available to CISC members or Associate Members only. Guests of members are welcome (e.g. chair of governors, school chaplain) but please check with the General Secretary first since there is always pressure on places.
The next annual conference will be help on Thursday 18 and Friday 19 January at Hilton Liverpool, 3 Thomas Steers Way, Liverpool L1 8LW. The final programme can be found below, including details of our keynote speakers Professor Gerald Pillay, Vice-Chancellor and Rector of Liverpool Hope University, and Dr. John Patterson, the Principal of St. Vincent’s School for the Visually Impaired. There will also be a showing of the new Ten Ten Theatre film for use in Catholic schools as part of their RSE programmes. The conference liturgy will be led by CJM Music. For those who wish to arrive on Wednesday 17 January there will be a tour of Liverpool in the afternoon followed by tea at Liverpool Hope University.
