Getting the Students on board

Now you have created your School Group, it’s time to get the students on board. We have pulled together some helpful resources to spread the word around your School, as well as tips on how to get the students linked to your School Group.

Remember, the more students you have entered in your group, the more chance your School has of winning some great prizes for your School!
