Teacher Professional Learning Workshops Funded By Philanthropic Donations

Sponsored places at workshops are made available through the generous donations made to PrimaryConnections to improve the teaching and learning of science. 

'Enlightening' Philanthropic Campaign

We were delighted to offer professional learning in 2015-2016 through generous philanthropic donations to the Australian Academy of Science from the ‘Enlightening’ campaign.

Twelve workshops have been held in Queensland (Emerald, Brisbane and Roma), New South Wales (Sydney), South Australia (Port Lincoln and Adelaide) and Western Australia (Perth, Broome, Kununurra and Port Hedland). 

A total of 386 regional and remote teachers attended these workshops. 


In addition, 38 bursaries were provided to allow remote teachers to attend a ‘One Day Introduction to PrimaryConnections’ workshop in capital cities. Bursaries were also offered to assist with travel costs for eight distance education students to attend the two-day pre-service teacher 'PrimaryConnections Ready' workshop.
