Attendance Matters


Every day counts is a state wide initiative that aims to assist in improving student attendance at school through a shared commitment by students, parents, caregivers, schools and the community to improve students' attendance at school.

To do this, 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.
