Supporting parents, supporting public schools

Community Development Funding

Proposer

Tuart Hill Primary School P&C Association Inc.

Preamble

Families from all over the world are coming to live in Australia, many of whom face difficulties with language and adjusting to their new environment. There is a strong need to embrace and support parents as partners in educating children in public schools. Funding is needed to achieve this.

Motion

That the President of WACSSO writes to the Prime Minister requesting that funding be provided to our schools to develop and resource community development programs, services and support for our families. This will foster better and more productive communities. Funding should not only be attributed to low socio-economic schools but to all schools that embrace multicultural families.
