Paid Teacher Relief

SDERA will pay the full cost of teacher relief for the first 100 registrations and then $350 for all other registrations.


As there is no cost to attend this conference, numbers are strictly limited. Two staff members per school are invited to attend at no cost. If schools would like to send more than two staff members, they will be added to an expression of interest list and contacted if a place becomes available.



Destination Wellbeing is being held at the Rendezvous Hotel, Scarborough.

Overlooking the newly renovated Scarborough esplanade, the destination aptly suits the conference theme of health and wellbeing. This award winning beach hotel will be the ultimate space to learn, invigorate and soak up the wellbeing that only the beach can offer.


The Rendezvous Hotel has 300 undercover parking bays that can be accessed via the valet parking entrance from West Coast Highway when travelling in a northerly direction. Take your ticket and pay upon exit.

A limited number of parking bays have been reserved at a reduced rate of $10 per bay. Upon registration you will be asked to secure your parking ticket. Alternatively you can park in the multilevel car park next door to the venue for $5 a day.
