ORIGO was established in 1997 when co-founders James Burnett and Dr Calvin Irons identified the need to meet a growing demand for professional development in mathematics. With the vision of making a positive contribution to children’s education, James and Cal began writing and producing mathematics resources from a makeshift office in James’ home. Today, ORIGO provides and publishes a complete education solution to its customers by combining an innovative range of mathematics products with quality professional learning services.
Originally trading as Prime Education, in 2003 the company name was changed to ORIGO – Latin for “original” or “the source” – reflecting their commitment to ORIGO becoming the premier source of inspiration for math teachers. Their product range illustrates this commitment, with a diverse selection of creative products that bring a renewed enthusiasm to students’ learning experience.
ORIGO publishes and covers all facets of primary mathematics education: from traditional printed products to digital interactive resources and professional learning. Their product ranges from the core curriculum to manipulatives. ORIGO demonstrates a commitment to excellence by creating products that inspire and empower teachers & students.
ORIGO provides mathematical resources and professional learning to educators throughout the world. Our national headquarters in Brendale, Queensland, provides customers with quality service, support and resources.
