Welcome to the Network of Educational Associations of Tasmania (NEAT). Our blog will eventually replace the website at www.neat.tas.edu.au to enable the executive groups in each member association in Tasmania to contribute news, celebrate events and post general information for all members in a speedy and effective manner. Hence, a Facebook and Twitter site is associated with the blog.

Neat Executive members are looking forward to sharing news from member associations and photos from events as they happen.  Member associations are asked to subscribe and forward logos if approved for re-use.
