WELCOME TO VPC E-NEWS AUGUST 2020 - DURING COVID-19
Upcoming Special Events: VPC Seminars with Steve Biddulph
Our last E-News was issued just as we were coming out of lockdown restrictions, and now most of the state is back to “Learning from Home 2.0 or "Remote Learning 2.0”.
This new situation has significant impact on all of us, certainly on families with school age children.
VPC ran Parents' Surveys a few months ago about your ‘Learning from Home‘- situation including your family well-being. We gave a summary of parent responses and concerns to the Victorian Government. Currently we run a follow-up survey and ask you again 'how you and your family are doing’. A strong, collective, parent voice is so important in these unusual times. Please take a few minutes to participate in the follow up; VPC PARENT SURVEY 2.0. We will share the results on our website and social media.
We are thrilled to announce that VPC is hosting once more two VPC-Steve Biddulph SEMINARS, pre-recorded and online this time. Both events, on request of many, on a Saturday afternoon on 12 and 19 September 2020 at 2 pm. Steve and the Victorian Parents Council love and support all our frontline ‘Health-Care Workers’ and we are offering free places to our Victorian Healthcare workers. Please visit our WEBSITE for more information.
We hope that you have had the opportunity to participate in the VPC LIVE EVENTS. Another new ways of bringing experts to parents. More VPC Live events coming up.
