We’re really enjoying the variety in the program. We often get the whole family involved in some of the activities and this is really exciting for Julian. Thank you for all of your helpful feedback, it’s really useful for me to know what he’s doing well and needs to improve. We feel so lucky to have this opportunity to live oversees but still continue with the curriculum he started with back in Sydney. I feel like he’ll have no problem returning to his old school when we come back.

We just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful work all the staff are doing at your school and we feel privileged to have been a part of it. Our children have both enjoyed their schooling very much and our travels have been made so much smoother with your supportive team at SDEPS.
We hope you keep up your excellent work and that all your students and families appreciate it as much as we do.

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.

Thank you for your lovely email regarding the boys. Freddie is really taking onboard all your feedback and is becoming accountable for his learning...I think having both boys doing the same units has really helped as the three of us can all discuss questions and read the books together. They are really enjoying the unit on George’s Marvellous Medicine especially the section on scanning the text. Both trying to be the first to show me where the answers are in the chapters.
Parent/Carer - years 5 and 3 - Overseas UK
Thank you for all SDEPS' help in facilitating what has been an amazing six months of learning for my family; we are so grateful for the flexibility SDEPS enrolment has afforded us to travel and not have to be enrolled in a school in one place in the UK. I should also mention that I am delighted to see that after six months of SDEPS, even with doing 3 condensed days of schoolwork instead of 5 per week, academically the girls are much stronger than they were when they started! One of the joys of low student-to-teacher ratios, good learning programs and lots of feedback. Thank you all very much from all of us!

Stage 1 - Parent
SDEPS gave my family the freedom to travel around England for six months and the confidence that they were continuing their Primary School learning. We were grateful for their provision of quality learning resources through an excellent technology system, the CANVAS app, which allowed me to submit completed units of work using only my iPhone. Their teachers provide very helpful feedback which is actually more detailed than that which my girls normally receive at school, and the Maths units of work in particular came with such detailed instructions and examples that my daughter gained significant confidence in Maths. The teachers adjusted the level of work to suit my daughter's needs, ensuring that they receive sufficient challenge where needed and sufficient support where needed. I appreciated their professional communication as well as their flexibility when we had weeks that we were travelling and needed to adjust the units of work to allow time for all the other travel-related learning my daughters were doing. Overall they had an amazing six months and learnt a huge amount; big thanks to SDEPS for making that possible.

I appreciate your efforts and I am so glad I had the chance to be part of your school. It was an amazing experience. The content was extensive and comprehensive. Fantastic. We will miss you guys. The teachers have given great feedback.. none that I have experienced from any other school.
Stage 3 - Parent
Her time with SDEPS has played a vital role in her recovery in isolation and has offered her so much more than academic strengthening. We are very grateful for such a wonderful program.
Stage 3 - Parent
Thank you for your hard work over the 12 months that the girls have been enrolled. We have truly appreciated the efforts that SDEPS puts forth in taking care of your students. We feel the girls will be in good stead when they return to their local school with the level of schoolwork and projects that they have carried out whilst being enrolled in SDEPS. The work was challenging and pushed them to do more than they would possibly have done in a classroom environment. (Anthony and Michelle, 26/2/18)
Stage 3 - Parent
You have genuinely made a difference to their progress this year and we feel very lucky to have had such wonderful support and direction from you. Thank you so much for all your hard work and wonderful feedback.
You have been an absolute life saver and I would be more than happy to highly recommend the school to anyone in the future.

A big thank you to all at SDEPS for supporting Ruby and Max’s learning over the past 5 months and for the high quality learning opportunities and experiences you provided. We’re confident they will return to school well equipped and will not have been disadvantaged in any way due to their absence. We can’t speak highly enough of the SDEPS program and will be happily spreading the word about the great service you provide.
Ruby - Stage 3 (Student)
I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning with SDEPS. There was always a variety of high quality learning tasks, not just mindless work designed to keep me busy. I really appreciated the almost instant, personalised feedback I received from my teachers. It helped me to set personal goals and improve my results.
Max - Stage 2 (Student)
I liked learning with SDEPS. There was always lots of fun things to do like bird watching and making puppets. I was even still able to complete the Premiers Sporting Challenge! I learnt how to organise my time and follow a plan so that all my work was completed on time. I think the feedback from my teachers helped improve my learning. ​

We are very grateful for the wonderful teachers at SDEPS that Lani has had over the past 3 years and would like to thank you very, very much for all of your assistance this year.

We have had a wonderful experience with Sydney Distance Education and I just wish this was offered as an alternative to attending a school in a fixed location. Lilli has excelled in this wonderful program and with dedicated teachers, it is an amazing way to teach children.
I am hoping that when our bus is eventually finished, we will be able to continue in this program with Lilli to the full two years allowed in this program.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Sarah and Amelia for making Lilli’s time at Sydney Distance Education such a joy.
Thank you once again
Stage 2 Parent (Travelling Student with ALSN)
Parent/carer - year 1 - Traveller/student with Additional Learning and Support Needs
I would like to thank you for all of the attention you have given to him over the past two terms. You have made this a wonderful experience for him and our whole family. Dylan was so enthusiastic about making the Spartacus movie that he has taken his new movie-making skills and is making another movie about the Dinosaur stampede we have just visited at Winton. He wanted to send it to his old school in Wyoming as it is something he told them about before we left. (If you like, I will send it to you too when he is finished, as soon as I can anyway). Thanks again for everything.
