The parents of Catholic school children decided to act to empower school-going children and their parents and created what is now called VPC. We have come a long way and are now the most vibrant online community for parents of school aged children in Victoria. In 2019 VPC celebrated 60 Years of Service as a non-profit organisation. VPC is a registered charity dedicated to everyone who supports Parents educating children. Being online has expanded our service to accommodate parents in Victoria, Australia and even globally – an exciting change, congratulations and thank you for expanding our ability to serve.
