“COVID, for example, and the legacy it continues to provide, presents ongoing and serious challenges, but so do many other issues,” she said.
As a mother of a teenage daughter completing Year 12 at a Catholic school in Brisbane, and having written four books on the education and welfare of teen girls, Ms King acknowledged the importance of parent’s role in their children’s education.
“Our children’s education has never been more important, and the home-school partnership plays a vital role in this.”

“Madonna’s commitment to the importance of the home/school partnership and the vital role that plays in the academic, social and emotional and spiritual outcomes for our children and young people will add considerable strength to the work that CSPWA and CSPA already engage in,” she said.
