At the end of June, a series of three conferences in Victoria will explore the relationships of schools with their local communities. These one-day events will examine the opportunities and challenges in school–community partnerships, and showcase interesting local, national and international initiatives. Schools are increasingly called upon to contribute to the general wellbeing of children and build or nurture community links, but face the competing pressure to enhance their core educational role. The forthcoming conferences will explore these and other issues.
