The IMPACT Centre's student programs are currently available to all state primary and secondary schools throughout Queensland, Australia.
We offer two main series:
IMPACT student programs cater for small to large group sizes. A group consists of 12-14 students logging in to a 1 x 60 minute web conference. The group can consist of students from your school only or a combination of schools.
We cater for both small and large schools throughout Queensland from all
seven education regions, with larger schools often registering many groups with us.
For band 5-8 primary schools it is possible to nominate half a group being 7 students, or even individual students with many schools creating
strategic personalised pathways across the rounds.
