CSPA Parent Survey- we want to hear from you!
Catholic School Parents Australia (CSPA) will be working with state and territory Catholic parent bodies, school parents and friends groups, diocesan directors and principals on the rollout of a parent survey which will be available on the new ENGAGE website from 25 July.
The survey aims to capture parent perspectives on issues of concern that impact their children’s health, wellbeing and learning, to help inform future federal government policy and the Catholic education community. Feedback through this survey will also add to the bank of evidence on how parent engagement can enhance student learning and wellbeing. CSPA has partnered with the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) in relation to this work.
I urge you to take the time to complete the survey when it goes live on July 25, especially if you feel that the past couple of years have been difficult for your family. As I mentioned in my introduction, if we keep silent on these things it is likely the presumption will be that we are all okay.
CSPA recently launched the ENGAGE social media platform. This new site is tailored to inform parents and carers about issues affecting Catholic schools across Australia and has a major focus on parent engagement in student learning and wellbeing.
