Every day counts


​Every day counts is a state wide initiative that aims to assist in improving student attendance at school. It is designed to change parent, community and student attitudes and foster a shared commitment to improving school attendance.

Every day counts promotes four key messages:

  • All children should be enrolled at school and attend on every school day.

  • Schools should monitor, communicate and implement strategies to improve regular school attendance.

  • Truanting can place a student in unsafe situations and impact on their future employability and life choices.

  • Attendance at school is the responsibility of everyone in the community.
