The delegation was very impressed by our recently developed interactive online syllabuses and materials to support teaching, learning and assessment in years K-10.

"The delegates were also interested in NSW HSC development and processes, including disability provisions for the HSC examinations and assessment marks, used as part of the final results,” said Mr Hewitt.
