2023 WACSSO Annual Conference
'Yours, Mine, Ours: Taking Collective Care of Our Children’
Our theme for 2023 ‘Yours, Mine, Ours’ captured the collective responsibility we have for the safety and education of our children. The Conference theme also acknowledged that the focus on mental health and looking after each other remains pertinent post-pandemic.
We know parents connect with the idea of ‘it takes a village’ to raise a child, and the diverse nature of roles and responsibilities attributed to P&Cs fits with the theme of collective responsibility.
Workshops and speakers at Conference 2023 covered cover topics such as mental health, encouraging community participation, teamwork, the multi-focal purpose of P&Cs, effective advocacy, supporting diversity in the community, helping young people plan their futures, attracting diverse committee members and engaging the school community.
