Celebrating Education Week virtually

Education Week will be held from 26-30 July 2021. This year's theme celebrates Lifelong learners. View the Education Week web page for more information.

Education Week is coming up in Term 3, 2021. If you're not able to celebrate in person with your school community, why not try some exciting virtual alternatives?

Virtual school assemblies and performances

If you plan to host a school assembly or share a group performance, you can use livestreaming or pre-recording as virtual alternatives.

Sharing and showcasing student work

Education Week is a great opportunity to showcase the talents and achievements of students. You can share student work virtually by creating:

  • Digital student portfolios
  • A class (or group) digital showcase
  • A virtual art exhibition.
There are a number of excellent, user-friendly tools that students and teachers can use to create these. Visit the Showcasing student work page to learn more.
