Our P&C provides the opportunity to come together to help support the needs and aspirations of our students and the school community, share information and views, and raise funds to provide extra resources.
Volunteering and helping our students by being involved in our school P&C also improves our mental health and models this for our children.
We would like to welcome any parent or guardian who is interested in being involved in the school to come along and attend P&C meetings to share your thoughts and ideas, plus meet other parents. We are always looking to discover the talents and skills that are hidden within our school community, and hope that you can share those for the benefit of our school!

We are always looking for canteen volunteers to help out our incredible staff. Without our volunteers our canteen would not be the success it is!! It is great fun and the kids LOVE seeing their parents helping out!
You can also order your faction shirts online via: https://quickcliq.com.au/
Once you have placed your order, our incredible Uniform Representative will deliver these directly to your child’s classroom within the next week.
Scholastic Book Club
We also run the scholastic book club and an annual Book Fair. The proceeds from these go to the purchase of new and replacement books at our library for the students to enjoy and borrow! Keep an eye out for the book club magazines in your child’s school bag!
Make sure you check out our street library on the corner of Gunbower & Henley Street. Feel free to borrow books and place your own in there to share with others in the area. We encourage books to be recycled and shared. This provides all members of our community access to literature and the joys of reading.
Each year a volunteer parent from each class collates and maintains a class email list and communicates information from the P&C, teacher or other parents to the parents of the class.
We encourage all parents to share their email contact details to be included.
The class rep helps to welcome new families to the class group throughout the year and encourages parents to organise social events for both kids and parents.
They help with ensuring the canteen roster is supported by the class group.
If you have interest in any of the above, or would just like to keep up to date with what is happening at the school, we would love to see you at a meeting.
Our P&C has a strong history of amazing fundraising events throughout the year. Over the last 2 years we have been able to achieve:
- 2 new refrigerated drinking fountains
- Large ceiling fan for the undercover area
- New playground on the oval
- Literacy resources for the classroom
- Sports t-shirts for interschool
- Ukuleles for our music room
- Plus much more!!!
To be able to run fundraising events, we rely on everyone’s support. Volunteers boost our power, lighten the load and exponentially increase our impact. Together we can make a real difference for our students and the wider community. Please keep an eye out for upcoming events that you may be able to support us with.
Our P&C actively creates opportunities for our community to come together and support each other. When we feel we belong in a community, our wellbeing and happiness thrive. 2023 will see us celebrating 70 years of Mount Pleasant Primary School and we have a plethora of incredible events planned. These include:
- Our annual Dad’s Camp Out
