2019 CSTA Subscriptions Remain Unchanged.

The committee is pleased to announce that subs' for 2019 remain as in 2018, meaning a decade of consistency has been achieved.


Details and costs can be found here or by using the link below


1. The period for which the annual subscription applies is 1 January to 31 December  - something which requires the committee to set the fees each November, for the following year.

The purpose of a November decision is to allow members to know subscriptions costs  at the very start of the school year, and make payments at this time - rather than wait to the first committee meeting after the AGM. Pay your sub now.


2. Invoicing of schools (by email) for CSTA 2019 subscriptions is now underway. Consequently schools will receive an invoice in February.


The committee anticipates that the above will significantly assist schools and individuals to support the CSTA through their subscriptions, and allow the continuation of the professional sharing of science ideas, pedagogy and resources that are the ethos of this Incorporated Society.
