As a member of the Isolated Children's Parents' Association within Tasmania you are actively helping our rural and remote children access the education and opportunities they deserve.
Tasmania has one branch called the Tasmania branch which is made up of ICPA members right across Tasmania. We are a voluntary, non-profit, apolitical body dedicated to ensuring that all rural and remote students have equity of access to a continuing and appropriate education.
ICPA advocates for families educating children from early childhood through to tertiary. Children may be educated in small rural schools, by distance education, attend boarding schools or school term hostels and sometimes have access to early childhood services. Tertiary students, whether they are attending university or training for a trade, whose family home is in rural and remote Australia frequently must live away from home to access further education.
Membership to the Tasmania branch entitles you to the following:
- Entitles you to take part in branch meetings and have a say in the issues that are important to you.
- Receiving branch news.
- State and Federal conference voting rights and attendance if nominated as a delegate by your branch (associated costs aer paid for by your branch or the lone's branch).
- All members receive an invitation to attend the annual State and Federal Conferences. Those attending who have not been nominated as a branch delegate will need to cover their own costs.
- Free subscription to the quarterly Publication -- the Federal ICPA "Pedals" magazines.
- A voice in your children's education.
