Community Conversations

In 2017 Parents Victoria and DET facilitated “Community Conversation” sessions at several government schools in Victoria. These sessions were attended by family members of the host school and surrounding schools.

  • A key theme which arose from the 2017 Community Conversations wasthat many families felt they would like a better understanding as to why things happen the way they do at schools – why students are taught what they are taught, why schools make the decisions they make. Families are keen to understand the why and to learn about what their students learn!
  • Another key theme from the Community Conversations was families feel they lack understanding of what are the school’s priorities.

An idea for parent/teacher interviews

Consider expanding parent/teacher interview sessions to incorporate a “why”, “what” and “how” session for parents.
