ABOUT OUR VIRTUAL CLASSROOMS
We are now taking bookings for Term 3 Australian Beef presents, Be Your Greatest Virtual Classroom program.
As an Official Team Partner of Australia’s Paralympic and Olympic Teams, Australian Beef will play a key role to continue to connect, inspire and excite school students about how Paralympic and Olympic heroes perform to their greatest through their active lifestyles and healthy meals.

The sessions last around 45 minutes with plenty of time for interaction and questions, and there is no limit to the number of students and teachers who can attend.
