Burnie Works would like to invite interested schools, organisations, parents, students and community members to join the ‘Every Day Counts’ Community Network to assist us as we implement the school attendance campaign and activities throughout 2023.
The ‘Every Day Counts’ campaign is a Burnie Works’ initiative to contribute to improving student attendance at school through a shared commitment by students, parents, caregivers, schools and the community.
School attendance in Tasmanian schools has dropped over the past two years.

The ‘Every Day Counts’ Network will be an informal group of interested people who can:
Members can contribute as much or as little as they wish and will not be expected to attend any formal meetings (but you will be invited to the odd catch up). Most correspondence will be via email.
Burnie Works is committed to working with our partners and community to improve this situation for our young people during 2023.
Please call or email our Participation Officer Nikki if you have any questions.
