Creating a high-quality virtual experience

A call to action for all those in our Catholic school communities ...

Education is currently being disrupted by new funding mechanisms, technologies and pedagogies, as well as ongoing curriculum reform. These disruptions have challenged existing models of provision for young people with disabilities and their families, however they have also provided Catholic Education significant opportunities to pursue excellence and equity for every child. This conference is a celebration of what we do and who we are.

Schools may even wish to register a parent and/or their parish priest as part of a school team, as this conference seeks to be inclusive of all those who provide educational support and care for students with disability in our schools.
