Inspiring stories

These stories – from the clusters, from educators, Aboriginal students, leaders and parents – tell their journeys, their challenges, their successes and will other inspire educators.

Homemade lemonade lesson

“This lesson is awesome! It’s so much better than doing worksheets!”

Iain's story about Andrew

"This is the first time in days he has talked to me about work. He seemed to already know I would like it. It was quality work and he knew it".

“...students acquired new vocabulary to speak about their engagement, resilience and learning and were able to identify their own resilience when learning mathematically.”

My perceptions of the Make it Count project

“Teachers are enthusiastic about their teaching which encourages students to be the same towards their learning.”

“I was amazed at how eager the children were to learn. They were researching at home, engaged in all lessons and excited about learning.”
