We are the peak body of ACT public school parent associations. Get involved in your school's P&C today!
We promote the interests of parents and other school community members to government.
We also help school parent associations (P&Cs) to operate effectively.
Including more people in your P&C
How can you keep your P&C doors open to all parents? Melissa Lee from the Council Office attended ACT Volunteering’s workshop on Inclusive Volunteering for Organisations and shares her learnings.
At our P&C... after school playdates
Chatting with other parents while the kids play isn’t new. In recognition that there is to more to gain — for individuals, the school and community — than simply a pleasant few hours, many P&Cs are organising opportunities for the whole school to take part. We talked to two of them.
Relationship, consent & sex education
Amid renewed calls for changes to school-based sex education to include consent, Policy Officer, Veronica Elliott, recaps Council’s work in this area in the past few years.
