MIND the Gap, in its fourth year, provides a platform for communication between secondary and tertiary education. Topics of interest to teachers, pupils, parents and role players are debated and discussed. The session began with an address by Dr Bev Killian, a clinical psychologist, who tackled the topic of labelling and how people react to the way in which they label themselves or are labelled by society.

Delegates then offered a range of topics to choose from to speak about in breakaway sessions. These sessions included topics on role modelling the whole person, effective notes and summaries, open education resources, educational tools from household waste, school versus tertiary and the not-so-obvious difference. The topics enabled attendees to interact with one another and the presenters for knowledge and skills and networking. The day finished with a presentation by Liesl Scheepers, who discussed technology as a social phenomenon and its impact on how teachers, parents, pupils and adults interact, both socially and educationally. There were also lucky draw prizes, including a laptop from Varsity College. - Supplied.
