Every Day Counts

‘Every Day Counts’ is a whole-of-government school attendance strategy aimed at lifting school attendance to improve the learning, wellbeing and engagement of young Territorians.

The Northern Territory Government School Attendance Strategy 2016–2018, Every Day Counts will support young people to engage in schooling by strengthening partnerships with families, communities, schools and government agencies through three key priorities to achieve significant and sustained improvement in school attendance and engagement:

  • safe and healthy communities;
  • strong families; and
  • quality early childhood services and schools.

Working in partnership with existing school attendance initiatives this project will focus efforts on early intervention and tailoring strategies to ensure students stay engaged in their education.
