LIFT Animal Naming Competition

Learning in Families Together (LIFT) is focussing on children from Kindergarten to Year 2, and further encourages families to be actively involved in their child’s learning and ensure young Tasmanians have the very best start in their learning including literacy and numeracy.

To bring life to the LIFT characters we held a LIFT animal naming competition for Kindergarten to Year 2 students at LIFT schools.

There were 31 winners across 19 of the schools with the students selecting a winning name being awarded a book featuring Australian animals of their winning character and a certificate of congratulations sent by the Hon. Jeremy Rockliff MP Minister for Education and Training.

The schools that had student winners were:

· Austins Ferry Primary School

· Brighton Primary School

· Campbell Town District High School

· Dover District High School

· East Devonport Primary School

· Fairview Primary School

· Forest Primary School

· Longford Primary School

· Huonville Primary School

· Riana Primary School

· Ridgely Primary School

· Rokeby Primary School

· Smithton Primary School

· Sorell School

· St Helens District High School

· Summerdale Primary School

· Swansea Primary School

· Table Cape Primary School

· Wilmot Primary School

LIFT schools have all participated in professional learning this year which promoted engaging families in their child’s learning to improve literacy and numeracy outcomes.

The school launches of LIFT have ranged from a school family campfire event, a teddy bear’s picnic with play based learning activities, breakfast and books, mingling in the school kitchen garden while learning about LIFT and an ‘afternoon tea’ with interactive edible numeracy and literacy activities.

The launches have been as diverse as the communities and families that their schools represent and have set LIFT on a positive path towards engaging families in literacy and numeracy so that their children can experience success.
