In conjunction with the PDHPE Enrichment days ACHPER NSW records a series of webinars for Year 12 students and their teachers. These webinars enable teachers to provide their students with the opportunity to be a part of an interactive session designed to prepare the students for their Trial HSC. Each session runs for approximately 1 hour and is best viewed with the accompanying workbook.
Quote from regional school “Thank you so much for the effort you put into the Webinars. The students made a big effort to attend each one, 2 of them live on farms 60km from town, but they saw the benefits and were pleased to commit themselves to the Webinars.”
