New Podcast - Learning in Lockdown

July 20, 2020 4:00 PM

In part one we find out how some local parents summoned their inner teacher after the country's schools were locked down. Our guests share their stories of veering off-syllabus with DIY science experiments and conference-call mishaps, to the vast differences in support provided by different schools. A huge thanks to Karen, Heidi, Jacqui, Amanda and Claire for sharing their home-schooling wins, a newfound appreciation for teachers and concerns for the future.
