Intended Audience: All primary school teachers

This unique awards program is FREE for all Tasmanian schools and focusses on recognising students who exemplify the values we all share as Australians including a sense of fair play, generosity of spirit, commitment to the community, participation and a genuine concern for the environment.

The Program also allows teachers to engage in classroom discussions about the values and what it means to be a good Australian citizen – be that in the school ground, the local community or the whole nation.

During a school assembly your chosen Aussie of the Month student is presented with a certificate and a badge to wear with pride on their uniform. We also send you a poster to showcase the names of your recognised students throughout the year.
