Commissioner for Children and Young People Report
February 28th, 2018
The Commissioner for Children and Young People Colin Pettit recently released the findings from his consultation with 1,812 WA primary and secondary school students on the factors that influence their engagement in school and learning. This consultation was undertaken with the support of the Department of Education and there are clear findings that are relevant for principals, teachers, school staff and parents/carers of school-aged children.
To share what WA children say helps and hinders them in their education the Commissioner will be holding free seminars for school staff and parents. The seminars will provide valuable insight and practical information that can be used to help improve education outcomes for all students.
If you are able to share the details of these seminars with your staff and also with your parent body through your school newsletter, website or Facebook page, that would be greatly appreciated.
While these seminars are free, bookings are essential and can be made through the above links. If sharing on Facebook, each booking page has a Facebook logo that will allow you to paste directly to your Facebook page.
Further information on the engagement in education consultation is available through the Commissioner’s website. Please contact the Commissioner’s office if you would like further details.
