In the next 12 months the future funding of every public school in Australia is being decided by the politicians.
We need to spread the word across the country about this once in a generation opportunity to secure full funding for public schools and ensure no child misses out on the support they need.
That is why we have organised a nationwide Do Your Block action between November 10 and 12.
Do Your Block is an opportunity to let your neighbours know how important it is to you that every child gets every opportunity to succeed and why they should show their support.
It is a fun way to get some exercise with family members or friends and at the same time help us spread the word about the campaign and the opportunity we have to get the politicians to deliver for our kids.
Right now, only 1.3 per cent of public schools are fully funded.
Full funding would help teachers change lives across Australia. It would allow schools to provide more individual support for every child and reduce class sizes.
It would also mean more manageable workloads for teachers and more time to prepare high quality lessons and collaborate with their colleagues.
How to get involved
Taking part is easy.
Just fill in your details on this page by Tuesday October 24 and we will send 200 flyers out to you. Along with the flyers we will include information about delivering them.
We are encouraging people to letterbox the flyers between Friday November 10 and Sunday November 12. Even if you can’t do it on those days, you can still order some flyers and deliver them when you can.
If you have missed the date to register for flyers to be sent to you, just download the pdf and print some to deliver in your neighbourhood.
We also encourage you to take photos of you and your friends and family delivering the flyers, and post these on social media using the hashtag #ForEveryChild.
Make sure you also send pictures to us so we can share them on our social media channels.
Everybody who sends in a picture will go in a draw to win one of the For Every Child merchandise packs we are giving away as part of this activity.
