NSW Department of Education and P&C Federation NSW Partnership Agreement

The NSW Department of Education and the Federation of Parents and Citizens Associations of New South Wales (the P&C Federation) are developing an agreement that builds on our strong working relationship.

The 10-year agreement will define our ongoing partnership to:

  • support strong collaboration between schools, P&C Associations and their communities
  • help parents and carers engage with and be partners in their child’s education.

Working together

A partnership agreement is an important part of supporting the way schools, local P&C Associations, and parents and carers work together so students can achieve their potential.

There are about 1800 local P&C Associations operating in NSW public schools. Evidence shows that strong partnerships across education communities between students, parent and carers, teachers, educators, school and department staff foster engagement and positive learning and wellbeing outcomes.
