Calendar Events

Here's your easy reference point for calendar events throughout the school year.

Each of the events listed are a chance for discussion, sometimes remembrance or celebration and a lot of the time a chance to dress up, coordinate with your team and support small businesses at the same time! Don’t forget to show your support to LGBTQI and First Nations-owned businesses all year round.

There are a number of dates that could be used as fundraising events for charities, like the MS Readathon, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea and many more!

I've based the dates on 2021 events, so they will vary year to year. I've selected some accessories to help you along the way, but for those of you who like to be organised, there's always the "Teacher Planner" 6 packs.
