Social media tips

One of the easiest ways to share the success of NSW Education with your local community is through social media.

Use the hashtag #EdWeek21 in all your social media posts and show us how you are celebrating Ed Week this year. Share photos and videos showing us what your school has planned.

Don’t forget to follow the tips in the department’s staff social media toolkit (staff only) and ensure parental permission is in place for any students you feature on social media.

Host a virtual or COVID safe event

Education Week is a great time to celebrate your achievements and share in success with the wider community. Plan a virtual or COVID safe event at your school, early childhood and care service or workplace during Ed Week and invite others to join.

Event ideas for schools

  • Watch the Ed Week livestream video launch on Monday 26 July at 10am.

  • Host an alumni event and invite former students to share their story with current students to show how everyone can be a lifelong learner.

  • Virtual events: if physically hosting members of the community isn’t possible, think about how you can engage through a virtual celebration.

Event ideas for corporate office locations

  • Watch the Ed Week livestream video launch on Monday 26 July. Gather online in teams or watch individually from your home or workplace.

  • Host a virtual morning or afternoon tea with your team and share stories with your team about your education journey.

Event ideas for Early Childhood Education and Care providers

Some ways you might like to celebrate Ed Week this year include:

  • A showcase of learning from children in your service.
  • Sharing stories with families about the celebration of learning outcomes from the Early Years Learning Framework.
  • Celebrating links with local schools to support your transition to school program or talking to children about the things they like to learn about.
