School Events and Awareness Days
Welcome to the 2023 schools event calendar!
Awareness events are an awesome way to get kids, parents and educators involved in meaningful learning! We have aligned each awareness event or day with a package of free curriculum-aligned resources, aimed to get the whole school involved. From Harmony Day to STEM day, you can use these resource to teach lessons that help kids build empathy and make change in their local community.
Here’s to a great new year of learning, stay cool!

The top three place-getter winners in each of the age categories will be chosen and one of these lucky students will be selected by the judges as the ‘Australian Dream Car Contest Champion’.
The child who wins first prize in the competition will win a $2,500 VISA Gift Card for their school, and another $2,500 VISA Gift Card for themselves. There are also eight $275 VISA Gift Cards to be won for the other winners across the age categories.

World Heart Day is an opportunity for everyone to stop and consider how best to use heart for humanity, for nature, and for you. Beating cardiovascular disease (CVD) is something that matters to every beating heart.
Use Heart means to think differently. To make the right decisions. To act with courage. To help others. To engage with this important cause. The heart is the only organ you can hear and feel. It is the first and last sign of life. It is one of the few things with the potential to unite all of us as people.
