About the NSW P&C Federation….
What is the NSW P&C Federation?
Its full name is the Federation of Parents and Citizens' Associations of New South Wales, but it is more commonly known as the NSW Parents and Citizens' Federation, or more simply "P&C Federation".
The NSW P&C Federation is committed to a free public education system which is open to all people irrespective of culture, gender, academic ability and socio-economic class which empowers students to control their own lives and be contributing members of society.
This commitment is based on the belief that:
Parents, as partners in the education process, have a right and a responsibility to play an active role in the education of their children. P&C Federation and its representatives share a responsibility of ensuring representative decision making for the benefit of all students.
Membership of the Federation is open to constituted parents' associations in all NSW government schools and to district councils of these associations. P&C Federation provides a range of services to its members, which include 2,100 school based parent organisations, as well as a large number of district and regional councils.
The Federation was established in 1922 and incorporated by an Act of the New South Wales Parliament in 1976. It operates at the national level through our affiliation with the Canberra based national parent organisation, the Australian Council of State School Organisations (ACSSO).
From the Constitution:
The objectives of the Federation shall be:
(a) To promote the cause of education and to facilitate community involvement in education.
(b) To co-operate with the DET and all community agencies interested in furthering education.
(c) To assist in the organisation of associations, district councils and regional councils and to assist any such association, district or regional councils by financial or other means in such circumstances and such manner as may seem proper to the association, district or regional council and the Federation.
(d) To carry out research into the problems of education and to co-operate with other recognised groups to achieve more effective solutions to these problems.
(e) To establish and expend funds both for the general conduct of the Federation and to enable the Federation to carry out its aims and objectives.
(f) The Federation shall be non-sectarian and non-party political.
