Everyday Counts


​Being at school every day counts. If your child is absent one day per week, this quickly adds up to two months of missed school in a year. 

Every day counts is an initiative aiming to improve attendance at school. The initiative promotes these key messages:
  • all children should be enrolled at school and attend on every school day
  • 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.
