Create a video to celebrate Education Week
NSW public schools will celebrate Education Week from 26 to 30 July 2021, honouring the achievements of schools, students and learning communities right across the state.
This year's theme is 'Lifelong learners', which recognises education as a journey that lasts from early childhood well into tertiary education, employment and beyond. Celebrations will officially kick off with a virtual live stream launch from 10 am on Monday, 26 July, with more events to be announced.
As part of this year's event, schools are invited to share stories by creating a mini documentary for entry in the Schools Video competition. The short film doco should focus on a student, a teacher, a family or the whole school and incorporate the theme of 'Lifelong learners'. It could be about:
- Interesting and unique school programs which engage students outside of the classroom;
- Families that have had generations of students attend the same school;
- Students starting their own business;
- Students or people in the community who have had an unconventional education pathway;
- Anything else that represents the theme.
There are some great filmmaking prizes on offer and favourite videos will be shared on social media in the lead-up to Education Week. The two winning videos will be announced during the live stream launch. For full details on how to enter, visit the Schools Video competition page.
