Attention: Parent Clubs in Government Schools
There are proposed changes to government regulations in regards to Parent Club financial arrangements and fundraising rules. Parents Victoria is concerned about the impacts of these proposed changes on Parent Clubs. We are also concerned that our position has been misrepresented in the media.
