Becoming involved at MGS

We encourage all parents to be actively involved in the life of the school. Contact with your child’s teacher will give you the opportunity of helping in some way e.g. reading, language activities, and music. Throughout the school, there are opportunities to help out with programs such as Swimming, Sporting events, Bike Education and Reading. We’d be delighted to have your offer of assistance!

PARENT ORGANISATIONS

There are two official bodies representing the parents of our school community; these are the School Council and Parents and Friends Club.

1. SCHOOL COUNCIL

Our School Council is composed of eight members elected by the parents of the school, and 2 members of staff. This council is the governing body of the school and is responsible for the maintenance of the school buildings and grounds, the allocation and spending of government grant monies, curriculum policies, the welfare of pupils and teachers and the future planning and development of the school.

Elections are conducted at the beginning of each year. School Council is organised on a sub-committee basis, where necessary.

2. PARENTS & FRIENDS CLUB

We have a wonderful P&F Club who do an amazing job at our school. It is a voluntary organisation which, together with School Council, provides help for the school in numerous ways. It is a major fundraising organisation and has enormous benefit in the provision of teaching aids and other equipment throughout the school. New parents will be made most welcome. Children do well when they see the school and parents cooperating and membership of the Parents’ and Friends Club provides an excellent opportunity for social interaction with other parents.

Our office bearers for 2019 are:

PRESIDENT Ms Michelle Mathews
SECRETARY Mrs Sara McNeil
TREASURER Mrs Judi Ficken

Parents and Friends Club meet alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays (as advertised in newsletter)
