Supporting parents, supporting public schools

Our mission

WACSSO influences the direction of education for the benefit of students.

The Western Australian Council of State School Organisations Inc. (WACSSO) was established in 1921 and is directed by affiliated Parents and Citizens' (P&C) Associations to represent the combined voice of parents and citizens associated with Government Schools.

WACSSO is committed to a public education system available to all young people irrespective of their age, socio-economic status, culture, gender, level of ability or geographic location.

We influence the direction of education through negotiation with Federal, State and Local governments, the Minister for Education, Department of Education WA, P&Cs, schools, unions and other agencies.

We facilitate the participation and involvement of our people and affiliates in school communities through developing their knowledge and skills.

We endeavour to influence the direction of education towards the views held by parents and citizens. These collective views include those determined by Annual Conference and State Council.

We provide services and training to affiliates operating in Western Australian government schools.

We believe the benefits of public education encompass all aspects of learning, social, emotional, health and physical education.

We strive to ensure that public education in Western Australia is of the highest quality and accessible to all.

We promote the achievements of the government schools and public school students.
