We put our members at the centre of everything we do.

Public school parent associations

All public school P&C Associations and Preschool Parent Associations are affiliated members of Council.

Helping P&Cs thrive!

We provide members  with the tools and skills they need to run thriving P&Cs.

We connect our members, through our representative work, with decision-makers in government.

And we connect members with each other, to share skills, ideas and inspiration.
