Nominate a CSPV parent representative (Principal to nominate)
CSPV work in partnership with the Victorian Catholic Primary and Secondary Principals Associations, along with the Catholic Education Offices and Catholic diocesan Bishops to continue to promote Catholic education as a first choice for families and support schools to develop parent engagement and parent leadership in Catholic education across Victoria.
Principals are invited to nominate a parent representative to connect directly with Catholic School Parents Victoria (CSPV).
One parent representative will be the contact person to represent parents in your school, working alongside you as Principal in partnership to share information and act as a liaison with CSPV on matters of interest in education. The parent representative will not be required to attend CSPV meetings.
To nominate a parent to be your school representative, please complete the CSPV Parent Representative Nomination Form.
CSPV look forward to working alongside you as partners and parent leaders in Catholic education.
Join as a Council Member Delegate
When you join Catholic School Parents Victoria as a volunteer, the role provides many opportunities to make a difference in the broader education landscape. Your commitment is four meetings per year (2 in person, 2 via teleconference or video conference) over a two year tenure (extended upon application).
Depending on your time and availability, there are opportunities to join sub-committees, working groups, write articles, provide feedback on key issues and contribute to decision making in education at a system, state and national level.
The tenure for a volunteer council member is two years with the option to apply every two years for up to six years in total. To express your interest in becoming a full member of the CSPV click here.
Catholic School Parents Victoria provides opportunities for parents who would still like to contribute parent representative voice to education but are unable to commit to becoming a full CSPV member delegate.
