 Looking for new innovative ideas that transform teaching or school leadership to better prepare children with the 21st century skills they need to succeed in the future. Modern 21st century skills, such as problem solving, leadership, creativity, and adaptability, require a new active, student-centred system for learning.

We seek ideas that better prepare teachers and school leaders to drive this new active 21st century system for learning.

Book A Holiday and Help a School

Courtesy of Whats On, Fedd can offer participating schools to earn 1.05% of every hotel booking made where their school is nominated as a beneficiary. 

According to the ABS, the average length of stay in hotel accommodation is 2.2 nights, at an average room rate of around $190 a night.

If your school is nominated during the booking made through What's On, then your school will earn around $2 per hotel room booked per night. Nominations can come from anybody, anywhere, and they can be booking accommodation anywhere in the world.

This might not sound like much, but what if you promoted it really well, and 200 families booked a trip for 2 nights each and nominated your school, then your school will earn $800 basically for doing very little.

How Does it Work?

Schools may opt-in through themselves or through their P&C. They must register with FEDD who will provide a unique URL to promote to the wider community.

Schools should then promote the deal through their newsletters and other  communication media, to attract the wider public to nominate the school of their choice to benefit everytime they book accommodation

Why What's On Booking?

What's On has secured a deal with a major partner to ensure the best prices are always available on its website. 

As a result of its "Giving Back" policy, What's On has committed to donating part of its revenue to help others in need

New Items
