Welcome to the NSW Department of Education – My Journey Virtual Expo 2020. The Expo is a unique virtual opportunity for students and parents throughout NSW to interact with exhibitors through online chats and receive on-site materials or resources that can be saved to a virtual backpack, which can be emailed to participants at the end of the event.
