We are struggling to get student numbers. How can we increase interest amongst my students?

Although most schools have a waiting list for student attendance, we understand that this is not always the case. If you are struggling to get numbers, check out our YouTube site for promotional videos that can be used to generate interest in our events. We also encourage students to check out our Facebook and Instagram pages.

If your school has attended an event in previous years we suggest inviting some of these students to talk to current students about what to expect and what is involved. Although some students may be hesitant to attend an event at first, they always have a fantastic time, and this is evident in our student and teacher feedback.

Recognising student attendance with a certificate following the event can also assist in getting the word out there each year.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
