Michael has spent the past 6 years designing two highly innovative online programmes for students across Western Australia and around the world. His Hale@home pre-boarding programme has transformed the transition to boarding school forever for students in rural communities and overseas. Whilst Hale Future School, provides remote rural school students and teachers with the opportunity to connect with one another and with schools in the city and across the world. It is Michael’s conviction that Distance Learning can transform teaching and learning in all classrooms.

Learning is leaving the building!
