”The Virtual Education Conference was a wonderful opportunity to connect with generous and knowledgeable colleagues from across our own country and across the world. The message that even at the height of the Covid-19 crisis, we are connected to a global community of educators was powerful, and reinforced the fact that there is always something we can learn. The sharing of support and good practice has continued after the conference ended - thank you for organising.Dr. Paul HeeryCEO of The White Hills Park Trust
