These learning packages have been designed for use in the home in the event that you are unable to access the learning provided by your school or your school is temporarily unable to provide a learning program. Each learning package has options for students who may find the work too difficult or too easy. We recognise that students across NSW have a diverse range of learning needs and some of these materials may need to be adjusted to support your child.


Further support for students with diverse needs when learning at home can be found at:
