The following paragraph is taken from the Department of Education website:

"Parents and school staff are partners in children's education.  By interacting with the school and other parents, parent club members gain a first hand understanding of how schools operate and the rhythm of school life.  Parents participating in a school's parent club can use, and build on, their skills and confidence, develop friendships and work collaboratively with other parents interested in supporting the school."

 

Parents Victoria can assist to establish or re-invigorate a parent club at your school.

The Department of Education guidelines can be viewed here.

 

Education Minister Peter Garrett says "It is not fair to just rely on schools to do the heavy lifting'.  The Safe Schools Hub shows how we can provide safe schools with strong community ties.
