Building Connections

Now in its 77th year, Education Week aims to positively profile and celebrate the strengths and achievements of Victoria's government education sector. 

This year’s theme is ‘Building Connections’. The theme celebrates the connections between schools and local communities and strengthens bonds with families and carers. 

Education Week is an opportunity for all primary and secondary schools, higher education, and early childhood services to showcase how they are building connections with the community around them.
