AuSSI Case studies

AuSSI is implemented in a variety of ways, reflecting each school's unique needs, character and culture and limited only by each school's motivation and creativity. Consequently, AuSSI success stories are many and varied.

The following case studies, taken from around the country, celebrate some of these successes. They represent a range of schools: primary and high schools, public, Catholic and Independent. These case studies provide ideas and motivation for other AuSSI schools, as well as for schools that will participate in AuSSI in the future.
