Remote School Attendance Strategy
Regular school attendance has many positive impacts, kids who attend school more regularly are more confident and learn important life skills for later in life. There can be several barriers to ensuring kids attend school regularly, and the RSAS teams works with parents, families, teachers, and other stakeholder by helping families achieve this. Every student, every family and every community have strengths, and by building upon these there are several tools and approaches we use to help and support kids to attend and enjoy going to school.
The RSAS team offers a variety of services and support, including:
The Remote School Attendance Strategy team encourage kids to get involved in activities at school, after school or during holidays. We also help families to get their kids enrolled in preschool so they can begin school ready to learn.
We ensure families know what happens at school and can see their children engaged and enjoying learning and assist schools to include more aspects of Aboriginal culture into the curriculum and classroom to help engage families in the community better.
