Parents’ Committee

The Parents Committee (“PC”) is an integral part of the community of St Mary’s Parish Primary School. Parents join the PC in a voluntary capacity to be part of their child’s education and to actively participate in the organisation of a range of social, fundraising and other activities.

All parents are encouraged to join the Parents Committee. An important feature of the PC is the opportunity to become acquainted with one another and grow in friendship, whilst supporting our children’s school.

Through the support of the PC, the school enjoys amenities and equipment which could not otherwise be purchased. The parents also help maintain school grounds and buildings at working bees which are held during the year.
