A message from P&C's QLD "We are thrilled to present this exciting opportunity to connect with hundreds of Queensland volunteers and teaching leaders for our annual state conference, Every child Every chance; Parents as partners in learning.

For the first time in our 70-year history, this year we are working with the Department of Education to deliver a unique Queensland perspective on parent engagement in state schools.

Throughout the conference we will be exploring the Queensland Parents and Community Engagement Framework, and what this means for parents, teachers and principals to ensure that every child has every chance for success.

As one of Australia’s leading parent advocacy and support groups, P&Cs Qld is pleased to be joined by many national education partners and statewide parent advocates, such as the Australian Council of State School Organisations and the Australian Secondary Principals’ Association".
