ESA is committed to supporting systems, schools and families to ensure that all students are able to continue their studies, whether at school or at home. That is why we have put together a range of online resources that will help teachers, parents or carers and students to sustain learning and wellbeing at this time when many students are temporarily unable to attend school.

ESA offers digital resources, as well as professional learning materials. Aligned to the Australian Curriculum and the Australian Student Wellbeing Framework, these resources are quality assured and freely available to all Australian teachers, students and parents or carers.

We will continue to add resources across all year levels and learning areas, to give children and young people the best opportunity to continue to learn at home.
