What we do

APFACTS provides a voice for parents and carers with children in ACT non-government schools by:

  • contributing to the shaping of educational policy and practice through strong representation on a wide range of boards, education forums and committees;
  • identifying and acting upon emerging initiatives on behalf of its members and working with local P&F’s on pressing local issues;
  • being a strong conduit by informing parents of issues in the sector and informing decision-makers of parents views
  • raising the profile of issues with stakeholders, political and government representatives;
  • conducting media campaigns and information seminars for parents;
  • promoting and supporting parental involvement and engagement in education;
  • advocating for fairness and equity and improvement in educational opportunities for all children attending non-government schools
  • respecting and representing the rights of parents to choose a non-government school education for their child without unreasonable financial disadvantage
