Social Distancing Superstars

Social Distancing Superstars

Spending time at home during COVID-19 social distancing has allowed us to try new activities, work on projects and find new ways of doing things like exercising, learning and connecting with friends and family.

International students enrolled in Years 9-12 at a NSW government school have been invited to become Social Distancing Superstars and share their tips, activities and projects to inspire others! Every two weeks there will be a new topic and 2x $100 gift cards to be won from our preferred OSHC provider Medibank. Students have been emailed the competition details, including instructions on how to enter in Microsoft Teams. Any enquiries can be emailed to isc@det.nsw.edu.au

Topics in the competition will include: creativity, innovation and technology; health and fitness; community and social connection; and an open category.

Winners will be announced on this webpage after the deadline for each challenge.
