Schools Shout Out

The Schools Shout Out project celebrates you, your teachers, and the remarkable achievements of your school. What makes you most proud about your school?

Tell us about it and go in the running to have your school featured in a professionally produced video that will be shared with the public education community across the state.

Project overview

Schools are invited to share their proudest moment, success story, achievement, or positive initiative that has made a difference to their school. What amazing projects or programs has your school delivered that has made a difference to students?

To enter create a brief 1–2-minute video pitch. The top 5 submissions will be re-filmed by a professional videographer at your school and professionally produced into 3-minute video.

Entries are now open and close on Friday 30 June 2023 (Week 10, Term 2).

Who can enter?

The Schools Shout Out project is open to all NSW public schools and can submit one video each.

Your school’s principal, teacher or staff member can submit an entry on behalf of the school using the online form.

How to create a submission

Step 1: Reflect on your school's proudest moments, successes, achievements, and positive initiatives. Share an example of one of these and explain why it is your greatest achievement and why it should be known worldwide!

Step 2: Students create a short video (1-2 minutes) showcasing their chosen example. Any video technology will work (smart phone or school ipad etc!)

All participating students must have completed the permission to publish form (staff only).

Step 3: Upload the video using the online submission form.

Step 4: Five schools will be selected for a visit to be filmed for a professionally produced video

Step 5: These videos will be shared with schools and communities across NSW to celebrate the successes and achievements of our schools.


Video pitches will be evaluated based on the overall impact of the students' proudest moments, successes, achievements, and positive initiatives on their school and community. The goal is to inspire other schools to achieve and create their own moments. The judging will focus on the content of the videos rather than their technical quality of the video.

Support resource

If you need help getting started on capturing video content, the Student Filmmaker series from Technology 4 Learning can be used by teachers to introduce students to video-making skills.
