Balaclava kicks off its day with animated fun

Balaclava State School is making Every day counts a daily habit – and it’s a habit the entire school is embracing.

Mornings kick off with a screening of the popular Every day counts animation, featuring the voice of Sam Thaiday as Sam the Dog. The comic book (PDF, 5MB) version of The adventures of Jimmy & Sam the Dog is also used widely. Not only are teachers using it as a practical resource in the classroom, but it’s a popular read in the students’ breakfast reading club. Older students are even joining in the Jimmy and Sam the Dog fun by reading the comic to younger students in buddy reading sessions.

How is your school using the Every day counts resources? We’d love to hear from you. Email:

Certifiably an awesome student - Balaclava State School ensures its students make a habit out of school attendance.
