What are teachers saying about the Key Concepts in VCE Health and Human Development series?


  • Mount Eliza Secondary College school logo  

    “Your resources are terrific and having a new study design I feel confident that your writers and the material meet the VCAA requirements- this so important when teaching in VCE as knowing what has to be taught and the key knowledge/skills being broken down for us is valuable in terms of time and support. Many thanks!”

    MARCIA CLARINGBOLD
    Teacher, Mt. Eliza Secondary College

  • Ringwood Secondary College school logo  

    “Jacaranda has been a really useful resource in 2018. I have utilised the textbook, digital copies and also the teacher kit (student kit) with great effect. I would recommend that other schools incorporate the online resources ASAP!”

    DAVID CLEMENTS
    Teacher, Ringwood Secondary College

  • Rainbow P-12 College school logo  

    “I find the Jacaranda textbooks very appealing to the eye. Not only does it have a lot of information, but also plenty of graphs, figures, tables and relevant images. I also find the Jacaranda textbooks cater for all learning styles of my students. Activities are included for hands on students, graphs, images and colour for the visual learners and the auditory learners can listen to students read, or watch and listen to the included videos.”
