"On the one hand the government is saying kids can't miss school, but then you have schools finishing early and adopting a less academic curriculum in the final fortnight".  Parents Victoria's Executive Officer, Gail McHardy, comments.  The Age, December 7 2015

Parents Victoria's Executive Officer Gail McHardy, comments.  The Age November 30, 2015

On this day, 26th November, 1925, our organisation was born. For 90 years now we have been the peak body representing the parents of children in Victorian Government Schools. Our achievements are many, including influencing policy, advocating for students & their families, lobbying for change, & advancing the parent-school partnership agenda. And all this has been done at the State level by many amazing volunteers & a handful of paidstaff. We are rightly proud of our beginnings & where we are now. Most of all we are proud of our thousands & thousands of parent club volunteers who have always worked in the best interests of their schools' students, to help them achieve their academic goals.
Our birthday is a time to celebrate you! And to recognise the many wonderful parents who have paved the way for us.
Congratulations to us all!
