In today’s demanding educational environment, the wellbeing of school leaders and educators is not just important—it’s essential for the success of Australian schools.

Featuring sessions led by Pasi Sahlberg and Amy Green, this free, online event invites school leaders and educators to explore effective wellbeing strategies and discover tools needed to tackle burnout and enhance vitality. Join us to engage in workshops designed to empower and rejuvenate Australia’s educational professionals.
