Exam Prep, the 5 Star Way

Exam Prep, the 5 Star Way Here in Australia we’re getting to the pointy end of the academic year, and thousands of our young people are about to go into a different kind of lockdown - the lockdown of exam prep! 2020 has been such a difficult year, especially for those in their final year of high school, like my oldest son.
