YOU ARE INVITED! A very special OzCLO Training Session will be held on the afternoon of Thursday, 10th December, 2015, from 4:00-5:30.
The event is being hosted by Baulkham Hills High School, a selective high school in Sydney’s North-West with a proud multicultural community. Their team was a state runner-up in the 2015 OZCLO contest so they’re happy to share their enthusiasm by hosting the venue for the event.

Two teams from OzCLO 2015 will participate in the 13th International Linguistics Olympiad in Bulgaria during July 20-24th. We wish them all the best!
I loved watching the kids work well together – I would rate the teamwork element of this competition as one of the best parts!
I just attended a gifted and talented conference where representatives from some of the top private schools were talking about how they use OzClo as one of their G&T extension activities and train the kids extensively for it.
