Kids Try for 5!

try for 5

Primary school kids in North Queensland are kicking attendance goals in the Try for 5! initiative that has been introduced to encourage kids to attend school five days a week.

In term two, LGIAsuper joined the North Queensland Cowboys in support of the community initiative by providing incentives to motivate kids to put their education first and attend school.

Students compete class against class and school against school for the best attendance rates, with the highest achievers fortnightly receiving an LGIAsuper Try for 5! pack. The pack includes co-branded Cowboys items that promote both school work and play.  At the end of the year, the Cowboys will give the school with the most improved attendance record a QLD State of Origin jersey, signed by an Origin player.

Nine schools from around Queensland are involved in the Try for 5! program which has support from the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. The program is designed to encourage and reward individuals and their schools for improving attendance.

LGIAsuper is proud to support the Try for 5! initiative. We look forward to the term ahead and seeing great results from all the schools involved in encouraging their students to Try for 5!.
