PAREF organizes 1st national congress

MANILA, Philippines – At the close of the 35th year celebration of the Parents For Education Foundation (PAREF) last August 2012, DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro mentioned in his keynote address that, “among the different models that try to put in place what is enshrined in our Constitution, I cannot think of any other model except the PAREF Foundation — where parents take on a very definite role, engages teachers and educators and institutionalizes this model of how parents and teachers can work together so they are a part of the curriculum, the community, and the environment that the school will be and what they intend their children and their graduates after they finished.”

As a response to the invitation of the DepEd Secretary “to ensure that the rest of the schools in the Philippines can learn from your model…how parents can actually be fully engaged and how they can implement what is enshrined in our constitution that the parents are the primary agents of education for their children,” PAREF is organizing the First National Congress on Home and School Collaboration entitled “Together to Get There.” This will be held on Jan. 25, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at SMX Convention Center Taguig, SM Aura Premiere, Taguig City.

Dr. Andrew Mullins will be the event speaker. In his position as headmaster of Wollemi College in Sydney, Australia, he has involved parents in the process of developing values in young people. He is the author of Parenting for Character. He has done his doctoral thesis on the neural bases of virtue. He was formerly the headmaster of Redfield College in New South Wales, Australia.
