Did you know?

Learning in Families Together (LIFT) is a new initiative that will build your confidence and skills to support your children’s literacy and numeracy learning at home. It will encourage collaboration between home, school and the community to help lift the literacy and numeracy learning outcomes for all children.
Whilst encouraging family engagement in children’s learning is a valued practice in all schools, LIFT will be resourced and implemented from Term 1 2016 in 80 Tasmanian Government schools across the state.
LIFT will provide opportunities for you to be actively involved in your child’s learning so you can give them the very best start in their education.

Why should you get involved?

  • ​Being actively engaged in your children’s learning can impact significantly on increasing the learning outcomes for your child.
  • You will grow confidence and skills to support your child’s learning.
  • Children learn everywhere, not just at school.

What can you expect?

Learning in Families Together (LIFT) will:

  • value you as your child’s first and continuing teacher
  • build on the respectful relationships built in the Launching into Learning (LiL) program
  • create pathways for two way communication between you and school
  • build shared expectations about learning for your child
  • focus on ways you can support your child’s learning in literacy and numeracy, connecting learning at home and school
  • involve you in decisions about your children’s learning
  • connect families, school and community in fun learning opportunities
