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.
