Subject: A 450th Birthday Present from the British Shakespeare Association
The Board of Trustees of the British Shakespeare Association has agreed to celebrate Shakespeare’s 450th birthday with a special gift to all school teachers. From this September, membership of the BSA will be free to all school teachers (primary and secondary level) for the membership year 2014-15. If you are currently a member and teach in a school, you won’t have to pay to continue your membership when the current membership year ends in August. To make sure you benefit from this offer, please pre-register at http ://www . britishshakespeare . ws/education/education-members/
The Board is very keen to use this offer to expand the number of school teachers in our Association. If you know teachers who you think will be interested in joining the BSA, please send them the link above and encourage them to sign up.
To qualify for this offer you will need to be a school teacher working in a primary or secondary school teaching children under 18. You will be entitled to all membership benefits including the opportunity to purchase the Routledge journal at the membership rate of £15.
With this birthday present, the BSA affirms its committment to promoting the important role school teachers play in introducing Shakespeare to the next generation.
