About this event

In this interactive webinar, Shane Wilson, presents how to effectively engage a culturally and linguistically diverse range of students.

Shane will share examples of best practices, and positive impact stories from Marble Bar Primary School in the Pilbara, which has picked up numerous awards for its STEM program.
