Love Your Body Week
for Schools is evolving!

5th–11th September 2021



Finding ways to like, love or be OK in your body can be challenging in the world we live in today, especially for children and young people.


Butterfly’s annual awareness initiative for schools, Love Your Body Week for Schools every September, is evolving and we can’t wait to share details with you soon!

If you would like to be added to our mailing, express interest now!  If you’ve participated in previous years we will send you an email as soon as 2021 registrations go live!



What is Love Your Body Week for Schools?

Love Your Body Week for Schools is Australia’s largest positive body image movement for young people.  It invites all Australians working in primary and secondary schools and other youth and community organisations to come together to celebrate diversity and build body confidence in young people.

Why participate?

It’s fun, flexible and FREE! You choose what you do, from the range of easy to use resources, and when you do it.

It’s an opportunity to shine a light on young people’s body image at any point in September. Use it to kick-start work or support existing wellbeing programs.



What’s included?

Once registered you will have access to free online resources from the experts at Butterfly.  This includes workshop content, classroom activities, posters, digital clips, a whole of organisation awareness activity, Dress To Express, and more!  We have some exciting new additions planned for 2021.

New to Love Your Body Week for schools? Express your interest to be notified when registrations go live!



Who can register?

Anyone working with children and young people (5 years and upwards) in education, youth and community settings.


Why not Dress To Express and support Butterfly!

Dress to Express is a whole school awareness activity designed to support the messages of Love Your Body Week.  It’s about encouraging young people of all ages (from kindergarten through to senior students) to be proud of who they are and to embrace all bodies, no matter their shape or size.

Dress to Express asks everyone to wear a TOUCH OF SOMETHING to reflect their inner self – inherent qualities, passions, hobbies, or cultural background – on the outside.

Turn your Dress to Express event into a fundraiser with a ‘gold coin’ donation to Butterfly and help support prevention initiatives around Australia!
