    Awesome way to deliver course - could complete over a few weeks when i had time. Extremely fantastic resources and lesson ideas. You have saved me my xmas holidays. only suggestion that I could make to the resources - and I know every one will say this - is to make them editable. E.g I have Staged classes, not just Yr 7 and Yr 8, so even just an editable cover, or even call them stage 4, rather then yr 7 yr 8.

    Overall great resources and direction. Although I did have problems accessing and watching videos that are on Vimeo, luckily I have seen the suggested ones in Unpack, but it is mainly the ones in Grow & Thrive I need to review again. Can there be a link posted under the video that does not require Vimeo, one I can access direct to Youtube?

    Has been good. Thanks for the few resources I could print - but I really want all that Yr 8 program stufff that I havenot been able to print. The Yr 7program only printed the back page - so I don't have that either. Another document only gave me the very last page as well - I would like the first ten pages. I don't understand why the tally is only showing 69% - I've been here since 7;30am this morning. I hope I can still get back in once I finish here.

    An unbelievable amount of work. I really appreciate how hard you have worked to deliver a quality course, and to include everything we need to enable us to deliver. My only comment would be that for my clientele, i would like all extra and inclusive activities to be tied into one booklet to ensure that work is not lost.

    I am not Tech trained (I'm PDHPE) so I soak up all the information and resources I gain from doing your courses. Having completed your courses has increased my confidence in administering and teaching the new syllabus. I am looking forward to using your units and all the fun activities and learning experiences. It has made me excited about teaching a subject in which I am not trained. Thank you!

    The amount of resources contained within the course is unbelievable. I loved being able to pause, find the page in the book or program and then get going again. I think I will need to watch it all again once I have started teaching the units as there is so much to take in with a lot of the content being new .
