The Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network (QIS Parents Network) is the recognised representative body – and a strong voice – for the needs and interests of parents who choose an independent education for their children.

We are regularly consulted by governments and other peak education groups on policy matters that affect the families of independent school children

We are also passionate advocates for positive and respectful learning partnerships between schools, parents and children – a burgeoning area of research known as parent engagement.
We are committed to building and enhancing parent engagement through our school-driven research project EPIC, our hub of extensive online resources and ongoing leadership in this important area.
