NSW Department of Education
Sydney Distance Education Primary School is a global leader in providing high quality and innovative distance education to primary school students. We enrol NSW students from public and independent schools who are temporarily unable to attend their local school for a variety of circumstances. Our differentiated and adaptable approach to learning makes the school ideal for families travelling in Australia and around the world. The SDEPS teaching program provides students with an excellent opportunity to enhance their education during their extended absence. Our highly qualified teachers cater for all students’ learning needs through personalised learning programs. We create highly engaging and innovative learning materials aligned to NESA Syllabuses. Students are provided with individualised support, as well as given opportunities for collaboration through our online lessons and peer to peer interaction.
Schools in NSW responded to COVID-19 in innovative ways and we want to showcase great examples during Education Week.
The NSW Government has announced a staged resumption of school activities, including a return to school sports from Term 3.
Opportunity classes can provide intellectual stimulation by grouping together high potential and gifted students who may otherwise be isolated from a suitable peer group. Successful students will usually have to leave their current school to enrol in a school with an opportunity class for Years 5 and 6.Read more ...
With students back in classrooms full-time, attention is focusing on what we can learn from the COVID-19 pandemic disruption.
All NSW students will begin returning to classrooms today as the COVID-19 restrictions ease with thousands of students setting foot into upgraded schools.
Students across NSW will be back in the classroom full-time from next Monday, 25 May.

I just wanted to thank everyone for the amazing opportunity and experience long distance has given us and I can see how it has really helped Claudia build confidence as well as really focusing on some areas she was struggling with. Many thanks.
