Parents & Friends Committee
The Parents & Friends (P&F) Group is an essential part of Montmorency South Primary School and is primarily responsible for fundraising to better improve the facilities at school for our children. It is fun, social and rewarding and includes every parent, family member and friend of the children of Monty South. The school depends on our fundraising to ensure we maintain and continue to provide the excellent education and facilities our children deserve. Along with the events we organise comes the smiles and memories for our children that they can cherish for a long time. Our events cannot be successfully run without parents and carers volunteering their time and efforts.
Over the past couple of years, the P&F Group has funded the playground outside the gym/Year 6 building including construction of the boat, steps and balustrades. Paving and garden beds, replacement of the goal posts on the oval, cubby houses , Prep playground, grade 6 seating area and table tennis table and general landscaping areas have been funded by our events.
In March 2020, we held our very first Fete. It was such an amazing event with our community coming together for a fantastic day just before the pandemic changed our lives. This also was the last big event we were able to organise due to Covid-19. We have planned our next Fete for March 2023.
Whilst fundraising is a crucial part of the P&F Group’s role within MSPS, our events are about providing a service to our school community and creating fun activities for our kids, such as the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day activities, indoor movie night, school disco, second hand uniform sales, colour fun run, and more. We also assist the school with events where required. Our events are always great fun for the children and we love to see our school community come together on such occasions. This year we will continue our events whilst following the coronavirus guidelines.
Please check on compass for more info regarding events and also the updates at the Montmorency South Primary School Facebook page – Montmorency South Primary School and our P&F Page – MSPS Parents & Friends The P&F Group , a sub comitee from School Council, is incredibly fortunate to have the support of the teaching staff and our principal Leanne Sheean. Leanne attends our meetings and provides valuable advice, support and insight into what is happening at MSPS. The P&F Group meets on a monthly basis and the meetings are informal yet productive! ALL parents are welcome whether you have been at MSPS for a few years or are new to the school in 2022. The more people who attend the meetings the better the forum for discussion of fundraising ideas. Being part of the P&F Group will enable you to meet a wide range of parents from all year levels, hear the monthly Principal’s Report and have the opportunity to ask questions and offer ideas ahead of time, have your say on how best to raise money and what items the money being raised could be used for. However, most importantly, you will get the reward of lots of smiling faces of the children to thank you for your involvement within our exceptional school community.
We welcome anyone who would like to join this group; you decide the level of commitment suitable to your situation. Your commitment need not be arduous. If you would like to attend a meeting at any time you are warmly welcome to do so to see what we do.
