2021 ADEC Conference

We hope you will join us for the ADEC conference at Peregrine!
Sunday September 26 – Tuesday September 28

We will be celebrating our 21st birthday on the Sunday with our school community and would love to have you join us. We will feature ADEC and alternative education as part of the day’s activities.

The following two days, we will share workshops, food and activities together – more details to come. If you have suggestions or requests, please send them to imogen@peregrine.tas.edu.au.

One of the things we want to consider is how to make the Summerhill Centenary a part of our time together at the conference.


It seems that most airfares are very flexible at the moment, so it should be safe to book fares now.

We have a 20 seater and an 11 seater bus and can help with airport transfers if needed. Car hire can be hard to get in Tasmania at the moment, with everyone visiting Tassie instead of going overseas. Book early if you want a car.

We can also help with transfers to and from local accommodation, so you may be able to manage without a car.


Here are some local accommodation options – most can be booked through Airbnb or other online booking platforms:

We could also offer camping or inside accommodation at Peregrine if budgets are tight. There is plenty of room, toilets and kitchen facilities. There is, however, only one shower. Please email us if you’d like to take up this option.
