Is success at school just about your marks? Young Australians are now having their say by joining a huge national campaign called Tell Us: Are you more than your marks? For the first time, secondary school students are being asked what success at school really means. At http://www.tellus.org.au/#/are-you-more-than-your-marks, students can complete a short survey, and go into the draw to win some awesome prizes, including iPod touches, pocket cameras and Red Balloon vouchers. Students can also get creative and speak up using video, text or photography.
Tell Us is open from now until Friday 30 April. The results will be presented to Government, giving young people the chance to speak up and change the way ‘success’ is measured at school. If you are aged 13-19, visit http://www.tellus.org.au/#/are-you-more-than-your-marks & take the survey now
