Why become a Squiz Kids School?

We use news and current affairs to engage primary-age students in the Australian curriculum.

We motivate kids to write by providing a nationwide audience for their work.

We help kids become critical consumers of media, and develop a strong foundation of knowledge about the world around them.

Our podcasts and activities get kids off screens, instead developing their listening, speaking, and writing skills.

We are created by teachers, for teachers.
