  1. Alexandra Sablatnig, Oxford Falls Grammar School (verified owner)

    Fantastic information, I feel confident to start my own preparation and programming to teach CAFS in 2021

  2. Melissa Szymkow, Colo High School

    It was for me no different being there – as I rarely ask questions, just talk the time to soak up the information. Excellent presentation – thank you.

  3. Madalyne McEwen, Birrong Girls High School

    Loved the practical activity ideas. Am very excited to use these in my classroom.

  4. Emma Nicholls, Gulgong High School (verified owner)

  5. Nansey Fedele, Westfields Sports High School (verified owner)

    A better use of take-home resources should be provided especially since it’s a zoom TPL and not a face-to-face one. Games have been included, however, more activities and information around each content area should be provided also.


  7. Marnie Pack, Yass High

    The information has given me hope that I can really engage the students in their learning and with the valuable resources provided I am more confident in reaching my goal to delivering informative through understanding in my classrooms.

  8. Stephanie Dwyer, Endeavour Sports High School

  9. Natalie Casale, Alexandria Park Community School

    Natalie was great. She has provided me with greater knowledge of the CAFS syllabus. She has also provided me with inclusive and engaging activities that I can run with my students.

  10. Lauren Parsons, Chifley College Bidwill Campus

    Great knowledge and insight conveyed in an easy to understand way.

  11. Dyann Paras, Tempe High School (verified owner)

  12. Darcy Hall, Moama Anglican Grammar

    Massive help! Maybe could have been towards the start of term 1

  13. Elizabeth Stoppino, Holsworthy High School (verified owner)

  14. Kristy Young, PIttwater House

    Difficult to do online

  15. Liam McConaghy, The Hills Sports High School

    Where are the links to the videos shown in the presentation? Thank you

  16. Brooke Willcox, Queanbeyan High School (verified owner)

    Good quality considering the transition to online delivery. The YouTube links on the videos are pointless – it would be better if they were sent out in a recourse. I may have missed it but dding a note that a printed copy of the syllabus is recommended.

  17. Margaret Pascalis, Menai High School (verified owner)

    Great presenter and information

  18. Nicholas Hartnett, Moruya HS (verified owner)

    Resources were exceptional and explanations of activities were very well done.

  19. Lucy Woods, Hennessy Catholic College

    Great examples of activities that can be used in class.

  20. Lisa Busch, Ingleburn High School

    I completed this course online due to COVID-19. I loved it. CAFS has recently shifted from TAS to PDHPE, so breaking down the syllabus and linking HSC content to Prelim content is so valuable to allow for forward planning. I loved receiving and linking activities to the syllabus too. This will help keep content engaging while teaching it for the first time.
