The issue of community involvement in schools is of significance to all educational stakeholders. It is by its very nature, a contentious issue which has the potential to impact upon all areas of the schooling process. In response to an evident need to investigate the changing parent/school relationship, a study was designed to examine parents' informed input into the classroom and the processes appropriate for these developments. As a result of participating in the study, a community of learners emerged, bound by a commonality of interests, goals and beliefs. This was an important outcome of the research, as it provides a basis from which to assist both teachers and parents in adjusting to and accommodating these roles in the developing school/community partnership.
