The Age, October 1, 2017

Parents Victoria's Executive Officer, Gail McHardy comments, schools tried to ensure that all trips were affordable.  "Schools need to make sure they are looking at the relevance of learning and that the camps are accessible and affordable for everyone."

An audit is currently being conducted by the Victorian Auditor-General's Office (VAGO) into the governance of government schools in Victoria - 'School councils in government schools'.  VAGO will make recommendations on how the current arrangements can be improved.


VAGO is now consulting with school councillors about the strengths and weaknesses of the current arrangements and practices.  As a current or past School Council member of a Victorian Government School VAGO wants to talk to you about your experience.  They are holding a series of discussions forums to hear from councillors directly.




"The broad array of volunteering that takes place in Victoria is inspiring and the Awards celebrate volunteers across all ages and from all walks of life, and the wide range of services, activities and support they provide to Victorian people, communities and causes."

Nominations are open - closing at 5.00pm on Monday August 14, 2017.  For further details.

Parents Victoria acknowledges the many family members who volunteer in our Victorian government schools!


From the ACOSS / VCOSS website - "The 2017 ACOSS National Conference, in partnership with VCOSS, is the event where community leaders, policy and decision makers, practitioners, academics and people with lived experience come together to collectively tackle the issues driving poverty and inequality in Australia.  Leading thinkers and decision makers from the community, public, and private sectors will collaborate to identify challenges and workshop responses to move us towards a brighter and more equitable 2030."

Applications are currently open for bursaries.
