leaf-iconPuliima 2013 Wrap Up

Puliima has once again come to an end. The Puliima Team would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was involved in the Puliima Forum held at the William Angliss Institute in Melbourne from the 26th to the 30th of August.

Over 200 delegates came from far and wide (Australia, New Zealand and USA) to apart of this amazing event. We hope you all had a fantastic time and left the conference with encouragement and inspiration for your future language endeavours.  

This was the 4th Puliima that Miromaa ALTC have held and we are so pleased with the growing diversity of the conference. The forum continues to become bigger and better as the years go by. We feel that this has been the best Puliima so far and we are just so excited to see what lies ahead for the future of Puliima.

Over 50 presenters, 10 exhibitors, our entertainment including the Urab Dancers, our volunteers, our supporters and sponsors, our venue organisers and our service providers and of course our wonderful delegates made this an event to remember. Without all of your input and support Puliima would not be the great event that is is today. 

And last but not least Kutcha Edwards for hosting the first ever Australia's Got Language Talent Contest.

Puliima is all wrapped up for another year and our Wrap Pages including photos and highlights are now available to view. Use the quicklinks below to acesss the various areas.
