Here in the Diocese of Sandhurst, the Catholic Education Office remains strongly committed to working with each school and parish community and the broader Catholic education community of Victoria in a spirit of co-responsibility. We continue to commit to shaping the culture, enhancing the performance and building the capacity in schools and the Catholic Education Office.

Parents Getting Involved

Parents play a major role as partners in the learning journey of their children and in the community of the school.


The Parent Leadership and Family Engagement Strategy grew out of a strong commitment to increasing the engagement of parents in the education of their children in fulfilling the Church's mission to understand parents as the prime educators of their children.

This commitment is informed and inspired by the research and practice of contemporary parent educators and leaders who affirm the importance of the following key elements:

  • Parent Connectedness (the capacity of families to support their children's learning and their own)
  • Community Links (engaging in mutually beneficial activities to include all as partners in raising local children and youth)
  • Personalised Curriculum (connecting students to their learning)
  • Community-based Enhanced Learning (engaging the disengaged) (Otero et al, 2011, Hawker Brownlow)
