Frequently asked questions

Parent Clubs are not part of School Councils. Neither the Principal nor the School Council President has the authority to dissolve or remodel the Parent Club. 

Another question...

Is the Parent Club operation information on the DET website compulsory for schools?

Yes. Schools are required to follow the Department’s policy regarding the establishment, operation and dissolution of Victorian government school Parent Clubs. Schools can find this information in the School Policy and Advisory Guide.

The following paragraph is taken from the Education Department website:

"Parent clubs (and associations) promote the welfare of, and provide support to, the school and its community. Parents are key partners in their child’s learning. By interacting with the school and other parents, parent club members can use their skills and experience to work collaboratively with others in supporting the school and its students, and build a sense of community within the school."

See the Education Department guidelines and information pages on Parent Clubs.

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

 

Feeling safe and supported is the right of everyone in the school community. The resources available on the Student Wellbeing Hub help to create learning communities that promote student wellbeing and the development of respectful relationships. The Hub is guided by the principles of the National Safe Schools Framework, which highlight the importance of educators, parents and students working together. The Hub includes a section specifically for parents.

 

 

Your views

Parents Victoria has had the opportunity meet with Education Department staff to review and give feedback into the Bully Stoppers resources. As a Victorian education stakeholder, we seek your input and suggestions in preparation for  future discussions with the Department.

 

1.  icon School Attendance Position Statement.  

A new section to inform on Parents Victoria's policy on specific items of current interest or discussion.  We will also 'flag' available opportunities to provide feedback to submissions and inquiries.

All Parents Victoria members will receive access to the Parents Victoria online Members Toolkit.

The Toolkit contains advice on:

  • The role of the Parent Club in the school community
  • Rules and Regulations
  • Leadership and management
  • Roles of office-bearers
  • Getting the best out of meetings
  • Publicity and communications

The Toolkit also contains useful templates for commonly used documents such as meeting minutes, money count sheets for fundraisers, report to School Council etc.

 

This section includes resources to help Parents Clubs promote themselves to their school communities.

'ANY QUESTIONS' is a resource for parents and young people with the aim of helping them know their options throughout secondary college and to really encourage them to ask questions to their local 'experts' i.e. VCAL coordinators, career teachers etc at their school. 

 

'ANYMORE QUESTIONS' is also a resource for parents and young people.  It aims to show that there are options outside of school - either as a whole program or in conjunction with school.  School is the best place for most young people, however on the occasions that it isn't, it is helpful to be informed and again to know what to ask questions about.

These DVDs are produced by the Frankston Mornington Peninsula LLEN.
