As of Term 2, 2019, the Secretary of the Department of Education and Training has published a new Model Parent Club Constitution. Developed in consultation with Parents Victoria, this replaces the Model Constitution that was published in 2017. All Parent Clubs will be required to adopt the new Constitution.

What has changed?

There are a number of changes to the Constitution which aim to support the improved operations of Parent Clubs. These include:

  • A change in the method of membership of the Parent Club. The previous Constitution required parents to become Financial Members of the Club. Financial Membership has now been changed to ‘Registered Membership’. The Registration Form is at Schedule 1 of the Constitution
  • An additional section addressing Parent Club values. These are in line with the Department’s values
  • The requirement for a quorum is now prescribed as ‘a minimum of 3 members’
  • Clubs are encouraged to devise their own standing orders, dispute resolution process or code of conduct
  • A requirement for Clubs to comply with Victorian privacy law and the Schools’ Privacy Policy
  • The stipulation that Parent Clubs are not permitted to incorporate.

Next steps
