Parents in Education week promotes and highlights the importance of parents being engaged in their child’s learning and education from birth through school, and to provide practical advice for parents on how to support their child’s learning.
In 2017 Parents in Education week will be held from Monday 18 to Friday 22 September.
In recent weeks, following the announcement by the Federal Government about the proposed changes to education funding, there has been considerable conversation amongst our national affiliated parent organisation’s and more locally within our Catholic school communities about the impact that this will have on our South Australian Catholic schools and our parents.
The Federation of Catholic School Parent Communities (the Federation) in South Australia, recognise that the proposed funding reforms will bring about a change, but as the details remain uncertain, how our South Australian Catholic schools will be funded remains unclear.
The Federation is delighted to announce that whilst she is in Australia for the ARACY Conference, Dr Debbie Pushor will be joining us to present a workshop for parents on the morning of Saturday 13th May. Click here to find out more or to register.
Support your child’s learning — at home!
You want to help your child develop their literacy and numeracy skills, but working out how can be tricky. How do you find activities that reinforce and build on the concepts and skills your child will encounter in the classroom?
The Learning Potential website supports the Australian Curriculum for primary school, and is child (and parent) friendly.
Browse by your child’s year level, or search for a topic, and the website will suggest ideas, activities, games and videos you can use to support your child’s learning.
Catholic Education South Australia (CESA) is moving Year 7 from primary to secondary settings
This means that Year 6 will become the final year of primary schooling.
Year 7 will become the first year of secondary schooling.
Most Catholic schools in South Australia will make this change by 2019-20.
