Countdown to Education Week 2021

This year Ed Week will be held from 26 to 30 July 2021 celebrating the theme Lifelong learners. 

NSW public schools will celebrate Education Week from 26 to 30 July 2021 with the theme Lifelong learners.

Education Week is an annual celebration of NSW public education and it’s your chance to celebrate the achievements of your school, students and learning community.

This year’s theme is ‘Lifelong learners’ and celebrates education as a lifelong journey from before a child enters an early childhood setting, progressing to primary and secondary school, and continuing their learning journey into adulthood; learning a trade, entering tertiary education, or the workforce.

Continuous learning is critical for success throughout life and everyone can be a lifelong learner.

This year’s celebrations will kick-off with a virtual live stream launch from 10am on Monday 26 July, with more events to follow.

Schools can enter the Ed Week video competition by creating a mini documentary that showcases the theme of Lifelong learners.

Tell us about a unique or interesting story from your school community for the chance to win filmmaking gear for your school. Visit the Ed Week video competition webpage for details on how to enter.

Visit the Education Week website for ideas and resources to plan a celebration in your local school community and share your Ed Week celebrations and activities on social media using #EdWeek21.
