The PEG is a new option for schools where the P&F Association model is not regarded by the school community as a viable option. Some schools may choose to adopt the Parent Engagement Group model (PEG) rather than have a constituted P&F Association. This may be because the formation or continuation of a P&F Association has been problematic, or the school community would prefer to adopt a model that does not include the election of Executive from its membership. This model focuses on supporting authentic family engagement in student learning to strengthen the partnership that exists between home and school.
The PEG will replace the P & F Association and will be trialled for 12 months at St Mary's Catholic College.
