Victorian Parent Council Workshop/Seminar
The VPC would like to invite you to an exclusive opportunity to meet and work with international parent engagement expert Professor Debbie Pushor in a personal workshop setting. This opportunity has strictly limited places (max. 30 attendees).
Debbie will be joined by some of our Australian parent engagement practitioners and additional speakers and panellists: Jacqui Van de Velde (Education Consultant), Caz Bosch (Chair, Parents Australia Inc.), Catherine Meynell-James (Stakeholder Manager, Department of Education & Training), Aynur Simsirel (Principal Advisor, Independent Schools Victoria) and Rachel Saliba (Executive Officer, Catholic School Parents Victoria).
This “one-day parent community engagement experience” is an opportunity not to be missed.
NOTE: All attendees need to bring a current ‘Working with Children Check” and show this on arrival at registration, as the event is held during school hours at the Brighton Grammar School premises.
The 2018/19 Entertainment Books are now available for purchase from the school office. The books are crammed with great value and a portion of each sale goes to the PFA. You can also purchase a digital membership here
School banking takes place on each Tuesday of the School Term.
