Every Day Counts at school


​The importance of a team effort in achieving school attendance is the main theme in the next animation and comic book in The adventures of Jimmy and Sam the Dog series, developed by the Department of Education and Training.

Once again NRL star Sam Thaiday plays Sam the Dog, with a cameo appearance by Johnathan Thurston, plus former Queensland Firebird Beryl Friday and two Solid Pathways students.

Research shows that school attendance leads to positive student outcomes, and can help children build social and emotional skills.
