  5. Elly Summers, Coonamble High School (verified owner)

    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.

  27. Thao Pham-Fong, Holy Spirit Catholic College Lakemba (verified owner)

    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?

  28. Mardi Morris , Vincentia High School

    I absolutely love the resources and simplicity of how each stage is designed.

  29. Juliana Leslie, Wingham High School (verified owner)

    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.

  32. Donna Kirkwood, Hawkesbury High School (verified owner)

    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.

  33. Shakti Maforimbo, Norwest Christian College (verified owner)

  34. Michelle Thompson, Richmond Christian College (verified owner)

    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 .
