Welcome to School Parent Communities

We are passionate about the right of all children to have a high quality education and the role that parents and families can play in this.

Since 1967, we have advocated for:

  • the right of all children to receive an excellent education

  • the right of parents and carers to choose schools that best meet their children’s and family needs

  • fair government funding to support students in non-government (Catholic and Independent) schools as well as government schools

  • the right of parents and other primary caregivers to have a voice in education and other issues that affect their children

  • the benefits of building the capacity of schools and teachers to reach out to parents and families and create learning partnerships

  • the importance of supporting parent and family engagement in children's learning and schooling.
