Watch and listen to understand how sick kids feel when they miss school

WHO ARE THEY AND HOW DO WE KNOW WHAT WORKS?
Kids with serious illness or injury remain at home or in hospital, watching from the sidelines and missing school. Some will miss a few weeks, others will miss months, and even years. This is a national-first report into the profound challenges facing more than 60,000 Australian kids who miss school because of serious illness or injury. The start of a national conversation on their right to an education on equal terms to their peers and the benefits of maintaining connection with their schools.
