Break the isolation – a series of webinars

With social distancing and self-isolation fast becoming our new reality for the next while, we wanted to provide an opportunity for teachers, students, parents and all those in the AMEB community to stay connected.
So we thought, what better way to do this than by starting a series of webinars where we can learn and connect together to digitally break the isolation. Our 30-minute webinars will feature a series of special guests, each who has their own unique connection to AMEB and something helpful to share.
