Like many things PARS, PARS Australia really began in Hong Kong! In 2015 several Australians attended a Certificate in PARS Playwork Practice course in HK, delivered by Dr Shelly Newstead. In October 2020, one of those participants became our first PARS Licensed Trainer in Australia – Rarni Rothwell!
The first PARS Online Masterclass was successfully delivered in winter 2020 for out of school educators in Queensland. A second course is planned for October 2020. Another PARS Online Masterclass is currently being planned by Network for out of school educators in NSW – contact us for more details.
