Federation of Parents and Citizens Associations of New South Wales (P&C Federation) believes and supports the rights of all children in New South Wales regardless of whether their location is in a metropolitan, regional, or rural area to attend a public education system that is free, secular, and open to all irrespective of culture, gender, academic ability, and socio-economic class and empowers students to control their own lives and be contributing members of society. Now, more than ever, it is important to ensure all New South Wales children have access to a school system that provides the resources to meet their learning needs in a safe and welcoming learning environment.

P&C Federation advocates for students across New South Wales in public education in various ways, such as councillors sitting on committees, lobbying parliament, lodging enquiry submissions and building strong relationships with stakeholders.

P&C Federation calls upon P&C Associations across the state for their input and to assist in its endeavours to advocate for students by lobbying Members of Parliament, on behalf of your local school and community to ensure the best possible outcomes for all. As P&C Association members, parents, carers, and citizens it is vital we place our children’s education at the forefront, being a voice for continual quality and improvement in public education to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for our children and our nation’s future.
