Firefly Education checks in with the Back on Track program at Sydney Children’s Hospital

Trisha Donovan took her teaching expertise from the classroom to the Back on Track program, which helps children continue their education while undergoing cancer treatment.

Through Back on Track, Trisha regularly visits Sydney Children’s Hospital to teach a range of children in one-on-one lessons, and educate parents and guardians on the best way to assist with their child’s education during this difficult time.

Firefly caught up with Trisha to talk about the challenges and rewards of working in the Back on Track program.
