Parents/carers collaborate to support other parents/carers


In a recent blended session, parents/carers shared their experiences and tips for supporting their children’s studies at VSV.

The session unearthed a wealth of knowledge that will be distilled in the Virtual Parents Victoria handbook, which will help new VSV parents better support their children.

“We want to capture the knowledge of all families – regardless of how long they have been at the school. Parents have unique lessons to teach others,” said Jordan Anderson, Leading Teacher – Family & Community Partnerships.

The digital handbook, to be released at the start of next year, will feature advice and tips in text, audio, and video formats.

“We wanted families to share their journeys in the most comfortable way,” said Jordan.

Families discussed topics ranging from supporting children with technology to keeping them connected with the VSV and local community and easing their anxieties about school activities.

Jordan expressed gratitude to all participating families, emphasising the importance of community support.

“Each family starts this journey feeling alone. It’s important they know they are part of a community that supports each other to achieve the best learning outcomes for their children,” he said.

Jordan said that there will be more opportunities for parents/carers to be involved in the development of the handbook throughout the year and encourages our community to be involved.

“Everyone has something valuable to share,” he said.
