Renewed National Narrative for Schooling Welcomed by Independent Schools

Published:

Queensland’s independent schooling sector has welcomed the release of a renewed national narrative for schooling, committing to work in partnership with all sectors and communities to achieve the vision for Australia’s education future.

Independent Schools Queensland Executive Director David Robertson said the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration represented an opportunity for everyone with a stake in education to refocus their efforts towards these nation-building goals for schooling.

“This renewed declaration sets the strategic directions for schooling. It provides the overarching ambitions and aspirations that should serve to inform and direct every education policy, decision and activity going forward,” Mr Robertson said.

“The independent sector – which educates 15 percent of the state’s school-age children – will play its role and continue to strive for improved teaching, learning and wellbeing outcomes for all staff and students.”

Newly appointed Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network Executive Officer Justine Cirocco welcomed the national commitment to schooling and the recognition of parents as critical partners in the education of Australia's children.

"Parents and schools have the same goal for children - to see them enjoy learning and to achieve their best - and that will look different for every individual child," Ms Cirocco said.

"This new declaration provides us all with the chance to renew our commitment to the education of our children individually and to the children of Australia," she said.

"Respectful, collaborative partnerships, between schools, families and communities are critical to achieving education improvement for all."
