  • Six types of parental involvement
    1. Parenting
    2. Communicating
    3. Volunteering
    4. Learning at home
    5. Decision making
    6. Collaborating with the community

The most positive effect is achieved when parents are involved in all six ways.

  • Sense of community – P&C is a great way to be proactively involved in school decision making and events and to be kept informed.
  • Friends – through P&C you will develop a strong support network with other parents and lasting friendships.
  • Rewarding and fun – meetings are social and informative and a lot of fun.
