Parents are under-recognised agents for change in schools. This chapter is about a school community project in the primary school which our children attend. The two authors were key actors in the initiation and development of the project, however the full project team has consisted of around fifteen enthusisatic parents, teachers and the principal, with a much larger group of students, teachers and parents also involved at various times in different activities. The experiences and insights of this learning community created by the project are presented here.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
