A collaboration between Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ), Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network (QIS Parents Network) and Griffith University.

Our landmark longitudinal study into parent engagement has confirmed parents and teachers are able to maximise student learning and wellbeing when they respect each other as partners in a child’s education.

The Engaging Parents in Curriculum (EPIC) research project, which has been investigating effective and sustainable parent engagement in Queensland’s independent school sector since 2021, has also found while parents are time-poor, parents of children of all ages still crave opportunities to value-add to their child’s education.
