Small group learning boosted in sunny Gippsland: Hear and Learn Activate system kicks another goalDecember 9, 2020

This extensive and diverse geographical area is renowned for its natural beauty. Visitors will enjoy hundreds of kilometres of spectacular coastline, picturesque rivers and lakes, forests and snowfields.
In the town of Lakes Entrance is St Brendan’s Catholic Primary School which “aims to teach every child at their point of need and to give them the individual care and attention they need to be successful and flourish in life.” Part of this has been the adoption of Hear and Learn’s Activate technology.
Teacher Kirsten Daly offered this feedback to Hear and Learn’s Daniel Hughes:

Further “The year 2 teachers needed a little help with the microphones” … “but I worked it out for them (thanks to your explanations of the system).
