This case study has been created with the support of Darling Heights State School and AERO, as an example of engaging with families to support student learning in primary school.


Family engagement is important for improving student outcomes. Darling Heights State School has implemented a literacy support program to help foster family engagement in their diverse school community. This program has been successful in not only helping parents support their children’s literacy development, but also in developing their own confidence and culture knowledge. This has enabled parents to communicate more effectively with classroom teachers, engage in school life and, ultimately, support their children’s learning.
