Home Learning: Resources for Students and Families
ACT Education Directorate
We aim to develop and deliver educational services to empower each child and young person in the ACT to learn for life.
Students at Yarralumla Primary School are at the forefront of scientific discovery this year, as they gear up to take part in the What’ll happen with the wattle??! program, run by the One Giant Leap Foundation.
For Year 11 students, 2020 has been a year of change. During their first year at college they transitioned to remote learning and back to learning on-site.
When schools in Canberra moved to remote learning in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Education Directorate swiftly mobilised a team of experienced teachers and Education Support Office employees to support ACT public schools to transition to learning at home.
The Kaleen Primary School Green Team are leading the school community’s sustainability efforts through multiple initiatives, including recycling, power use and fertiliser creation.
Today the achievements of secondary students across the ACT were recognised in the Board of Senior Secondary Studies (BSSS) Recognition of Excellence Ceremony.

Attending an ACT public school is free for all children and young people in the ACT - but we know that some families feel pressure as a result of the costs associated with things like school uniforms, book packs and stationery. Making access to education equitable for all students, regardless of personal circumstances, is a core objective of our public education system. Help is available from the ACT Government – visit http://ow.ly/zXau50Dd6Np for more information. Families are also welcome to work with a community organisation and the GIVIT charity to request donated items such as shoes, uniforms, backpacks, lunchboxes, drink bottles, phone chargers or even fuel or grocery vouchers.
