GRANTS FOR ENGAGEMENT - TASMANIAN CATHOLIC SCHOOLS PARENTS COUNCIL
Early in 2020, the Tasmanian Catholic Schools Parents Council (TCSPC) decided we wanted to give each School and College in Tasmania support in order to assist with Parent Engagement.
It was decided to offer $1000 ‘Parent Engagement Grants’ to each School and College help them with either a new initiative or to help them continue with an existing one. We are pleased to say that we have received some very good Grant submissions, including, as examples, applications to ‘…help build Parent capacity to support their children with early years literacy and numeracy learning’, and another to ‘…run a session/s for parents on helping their child with anxiety.’
TCSPC also seeks feedback on how the sessions are received by parents, either by a TCSPC representative attending, or asking for written or verbal feedback. By doing this, we can cross pollinate ideas and actions that are successful.
