Supporting parents, supporting public schools


The Western Australian Council of State School Organisations Inc. (WACSSO) is the peak body representing parents of public school children in Western Australia. We provide services and representation at State and National level to approximately 640 Parents and Citizens Associations (P&Cs) in Western Australia. WACSSO influences the direction of public education for the benefit of students.

WACSSO is largely a volunteer organisation made up of Councillors (representatives) from each education district in Western Australia. State Councillors attend five weekend State Council meetings each year, where they debate and discuss issues relevant to parents and students in public schools. A State Conference is held once a year usually in August, where both Councillors and representatives from P&C Associations congregate to discuss and decide on the direction of the organisation.

WACSSO also employs four full time equivalent and several casual staff to assist Councillors and provide expert advice to affiliates.
