VPC E-NEWS MARCH 2023
RESENT DUE TO TECHNICAL ISSUES WITH OUR MAILING SYSTEM
It has been a busy start to 2023. VPC has put together an exciting program of events for our parents for 2023.
Vaping is on the rise. Parents are finding it challenging to get helpful information so they can assist their children with better health choices. Lung Foundation Australia has launched an e-learning program you can access and share with your children. Better information means we can all make better choices. Read the blog here.
Over the course of the year, many parents will contact VPC asking about teachers and their qualifications. Liz Aloni, Stakeholder Engagement & Communications Manager, VIT has provided some useful information for parents on this matter. Read the blog from Liz here.
Parents and Schools are far more aware and proactive when it comes to protecting our children from sexual misconduct. How do we know that school staff found guilty of sexual misconduct cannot make their way back into schools? The VIT has provided some information on how they work with schools and the police in these matters.
“Where words fail, music speaks.” – Hans Christian Andersen. We are excited to have Paula Hanson as our guest blogger and #VPCLive guest for the “All About Music Series” this year. Sometimes in the busyness of life we forget how amazing having music in our lives can actually be. See more from Paula here.
VPC supports parent choice in education, and this includes families choosing homeschooling. We are keen to hear about the experiences of homeschooling families, so VPC is better able to extend opportunities to support the important work of homeschooling. We are still collecting data in our survey.
