Schools and Colleges throughout NSW are getting behind Public Education Day on 15 March. A variety of activities are being planned to celebrate the excellent work being undertaken by students and teachers in our great system.
For Schools and Colleges
The current edition of Education includes a "round of celebrations" being planned in schools and colleges. Other ideas were included in the previous Campaign Bulletin (19 February 2001). Your school may have already planned an activity or might want to adapt or adopt ideas from other schools and colleges.
Whatever the activity, big or small, please ensure your school and college has something planned for the morning of 15 March.
Support from Local Teacher Associations
