We are the peak body of ACT public school Parents and Citizens Associations. We promote the interests of parents and other school community members to government.
We also help Parents and Citizens Associations to operate effectively.
Understanding Learning Difficulties
This free workshop for parents of students with learning difficulties (such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia) is being repeated due to popular demand. Presented by educational and developmental psychologist Mandy Nayton for the Education andTraining Directorate, it will provide parents with a greater awareness and understanding of the impact learning difficulties can have on children of all ages.
Students with challenging behaviours: review
The ACT Government has appointed an Expert Panel to review policy and practice in all ACT schools with respect to students with complex needs and challenging behaviour.
Collecting your views
Council's role includes responding to a variety of government and non-government reports, lobbying government on behalf of public school communities and making statements to the media. To do this, it is necessary to have an agreed position on a wide range of topics so that Council can reflect, as accurately as possible, the collective views of parents. These agreed views are stated in Council's Policy Document.
