Thank someone in your village - It Takes a Village

Thank someone
in your village

It’s time to shine a light on the unsung heroes making a difference in the lives of our young people.


Do you know someone making a difference in a young person’s life? Who has helped you achieve your goals? It’s time our unsung education heroes got the credit they deserve. Call them out!

It might be a grandparent that encourages their grandchild to dream big; a sports coach who takes the time to ask about school projects; a school kid encouraging classmates to strive for more; a charity worker helping develop a passion; or an extended family member who takes time out to help with homework.

We all know Aussies helping our youngsters achieve their education goals and encouraging them to dream big. Tell us about them!
