Family and Community Engagement

In 2015, the NSW Department of Education issued schools with a new resource package titled: "Strengthening family and community engagement". The package addressed the following areas:

  • Communicating;
  • Connecting learning at home and at school;
  • Building community and identity;
  • Recognising the role of the family;
  • Consultative decision - making;
  • Collaborating beyond the school; and
  • Participating.

These materials were reviewed by Cromer Public School Council. Elected parent and staff representatives and the appointed community member agreed this was a valuable resource and decided to undertake a project to explore the range of services and support agencies that could be brought together in a readily accessible way to assist families. It was decided to place the information onto the school website under the following categories:

  • Community Engagement;
  • Disability Services;
  • Education;
  • Family, Relationships, Parenting; and
  • Health.

Each heading is hyperlinked to the organisation's website which will provide additional information.
