Remote Learning Resources from the ACTF
The ACTF continues to support educators during periods of remote teaching. Keep students engaged and learning with our quality kids’ content and tasks from our curriculum-mapped resources.
2021 My Place Competition
With entries being accepted from August 16 – September 17, now is a great time for students to begin crafting their creative writing entries for the 2021 My Place Competition.
The My Place television series, based on the classic picture book by Nadia Wheatley and Donna Rawlins, is a ‘time machine’ which takes audiences back into the past. It depicts the history of one Australian community through the eyes of the diverse children who lived there, highlighting the ways that First Nations people and immigrants have shaped our national story.
Drawing on this theme of diversity, the 2021 My Place Competition prompts students to reflect on and celebrate the diversity in their own communities. In 2021, we are asking Australian children: tell us about your place.
Jointly presented by ABC Education and the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF), the 2021 My Place Competition is open to primary students in Years 3 – 6 and special education students of all ages.
