School Attendance – Every Day Counts
In the family, the parents, as the primary educators of their children, begin the work of personal, spiritual and social development. The example of parents provide the strongest and most lasting influence on their children.
The Archdiocese of Melbourne hosts the largest Catholic education system in the country, with 329 primary and secondary schools. Catholic schools in this Archdiocese educate approximately one in four Melbourne metropolitan students.
The Parent Handbooks are designed for parents whose child is about to commence their educational journey at a Catholic primary and secondary school.
The Victorian Catholic Schools Parent Body (VCSPB) was established at the start of 2006. The purposes of the VCSPB are to:
provide a forum to represent parents in Victorian Catholic schools
promote parents as partners in education with the school, Church and the community
promote the principles of Catholic education in collaboration with the Diocesan Bishops
promote Catholic schools as schools of first choice for Catholic families.
The VCSPB represents parents of students in Catholic schools at diocesan, state and national levels, through school boards, or where none exist, through school based parent support groups.
The ACU Melbourne Psychology and Counselling Clinic (MPACC) provides services including counselling and educational assessments. They also run seminars and programs including 'Transition from Primary School to Secondary School' and 'Coping with Caring'.
