So Many Valuable Ideas

"There were so many amazing ideas shared throughout the webinar. As a team we reflected after the session discussing what we do already and how we could make changes to our program."

Maree Maurer

Finding Confidence Through Training

"I feel a lot more confident embedding Indigenous culture into my curriculum now and I am particularly looking forward to telling stories outdoors using marks, rather than relying on the actual book. The children will gain so much from these experiences."

Catherine Turbill

Nicola Walker
