12 resources to help educators, parents and students return to school

Around Australia, thousands of teachers and students are returning to face-to-face learning as COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease.

To help with the transition back to school, we’ve collated some best practice resources to help schools, teachers, parents, and students get used to the new normal.

These resources are helpful during the many other big changes that students and teachers go through, such as starting a new school, going from primary to high school, and returning to school after holidays.
