A Bit about

Parents & Friends

Parents & Friends are a friendly group who meet regularly to discuss and support the involvement of the school community within Mount Compass Area School.

What We Do

We assist with fundraising, support during school events and by offering a means of contact between home and school. Some of our current adventures include : Staff Lunch, organisation of a free obstacle course at the last community market, Junior School Disco, Sports Day decoration stall, Mother’s & Father’s Day stalls, Donuts for different events, Bunnings and market sausage sizzles.

Where Do The Funds Go?

Money raised helps the school community by funding special projects that make a difference in the school. Requests for projects can come from students, teachers or parents. All projects are considered by the Parents & Friends committee. Some previous projects include : the verandah outside R/1 classrooms, buddy benches, Year 3/4 gardening kit, ongoing support of Breakfast Club and outdoor tables for extra seating.
