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.
The Educational Publishing Awards Australia recognises the best of the best in educational resources and for the fourth year in a row we’ve taken home multiple wins!
Earlier this year Firefly Education Director Peter Stannard took home the Mike Horsley Award which recognises outstanding service to the Australian educational publishing industry.
Peter has been immersed in the education industry for close to 50 years. Having authored over 60 educational titles, and selling over 1 million copies of those texts, Peter’s contribution to the Australian educational landscape is awe-inspiring.
We are so excited to have been featured in the Term 1, 2019 edition of School News. The article explored all things synthetic phonics, using examples from our award-winning spelling program Sound Waves.
For the third year in a row, Firefly Education programs have won awards at the Educational Publishing Awards Australia. Every year, education programs from all around Australia are recognised for excellence and innovation in the field.
