The Association of Parents and Friends of ACT Schools (APFACTS) is the voice of non-government school parents (Catholic and Independent) in the ACT. For more information, visit our website at www.apfacts.org.au or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Apfacts
As Hugh Boulter (President) and I settle into our roles at APFACTS it has become increasing evident that as an organisation we are well represented and respected across the education sector. In the past few weeks APFACTS has had representation at:
- ACT Curriculum Advisory Group
- Preschool Matter Consultative Committee
- PE Pulse
- Observers at AIS ACT board meeting
- ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies (BSSS) (Linda
- Curriculum Advisory Committee)
- ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies (Hugh
- Handed down the BSSS Review of the year 11 and 12 Curriculum, which he chaired, with all recommendations accepted by the Board) -Prepared and lodged the APFACTS ACT Budget Submission highlighting key issues to the ACT Government
This level of involvement keeps us current on issues and trends developing in the Education sector. The information gathered from these meetings assists us in making informed choices that are representative of parent interests. APFACTS has clearly developed a very strong advocacy platform on behalf of our parent members.
We look forward to developing our connections with our parent representatives from your schools so that we can continue to build on the strengths of APFACTS.
