Follow Up To Parent Survey - Board Member

Andrew Gould
Mindarie Primary School

On Tuesday 27 October, I attended the 'Your Move' community forum in the Perth CBD, and was inspired by the work of Mount Lawley PS and their P&C. They are so lucky to have such a driving force represented in their parent body, and I was determined to get back to the office and start the process of starting our own Parent/Staff group to keep things moving in our Active Journey.

I presented a wrap up from the forum to our P&C, including parents, community members and Mark Folkard (MLA). They were most interested in the statistics and costs that I presented to them, and I delivered my interest in starting a Parent/Staff group. I didn't have to wait for long, and already have a board member representative to support the program. The P&C meeting is later this week, hopefully with the same presentation, I will be able to bring another parent along for the journey and have our first meeting with the Student Leaders.
