The Wellbeing Distance Education Network Conference

In Week 6 of Term 3' 2019, SDEPS was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to coordinate and host a wellbeing themed conference for Distance Education teachers across NSW. Many thanks go to RDE NSW for their generous funding of the event. Teachers attended from distance education schools encompassing both primary and secondary sectors and spanning distances from Sydney all the way to Ballina NSW. Expert presenters, including our school’s registered psychologist, BeYou, Wellbeing in Schools Australia, The Resilience Doughnut and more, upskilled teachers on topics including student, staff and parent/supervisor wellbeing. Attendees found it to be an enriching, professional learning opportunity.
