Parental Engagement Discussion Group
ARACY is holding discussions with parents and carers of primary and secondary school students in school communities in the ACT. One of the areas they are keen to investigate more fully is parental engagement for children with Complex Needs and Challenging Behaviours.
We are interested in hearing your experiences and thoughts about how families and schools should work together to support a child’s learning. In your opinion, what works well and what doesn’t work well (or as well as it could)?
Discussions will explore your perspectives on the quality of the connection you have with your child’s school and educators. Do you feel supported and empowered by your child’s school? Do you feel a sense of belonging in your child’s school and community?
Two session times are offered:
Date: Wednesday, 23 November
Date: Thursday, 24 November
APFACTS invite you to participate in this important research.
RSVPs are essential. Please reply with your name and contact number by Monday, 20 November to email@example.com
