Reviews

“Prior to participating in the Sydney Opera House digital program, I underestimated the value of such an experience. I thought that it might be disconnected and impersonal, whereas it turned out to be the exact opposite. It was a highly engaging, exciting and “useable” format for learning.” - Teacher, Keith Area School, SA
