The Agreement underpins and reinforces the importance of parents in their child’s education and supports the way schools, P&C Associations and parents and carers work together to ensure students achieve their potential through public education.

Strong, meaningful partnerships across education communities - between students, parent and carers, teachers, educators, school and department staff - foster engagement and positive learning and wellbeing outcomes.

Productive partnerships between schools and P&C Associations ensure:

  • students benefit from the school’s planned and proactive engagement with parents/ carers and the broader community

  • student learning is enriched by positive connections between schools, parents, carers and community

  • parent participation in their child’s education is supported

  • the collective voice of parents and carers is heard and valued

  • the work of P&C Associations in school communities is recognised

  • school communities are strengthened and engaged

  • a shared vision is cultivated across the school community.

"Together, we will strengthen collaboration between schools, P&C Associations and their school communities so that all students experience a high quality and equitable education throughout their learning journey."
