Primary Connections acknowledges and commends the compassion of all teachers, and their dedication and commitment to student welfare and well-being during this unprecedented start to the 2020 school year.

We've got lots of ideas about how we can support teachers to transition to alternative methods of delivering education and support for students, but we want to be guided by you. Complete this short survey or email us, to inform how Primary Connections can best meet the needs of Australian teachers during this time.

Please be in touch with us directly over the next few weeks and months if there is anything we can do for you. We are here to support you.
