President’s Message

Matt Hodgkiss

Hello, welcome to the P&C website. I’m Matt, my wife (Christine) and I have 2 children at Mowbray (Ella in year 5 and Josh in year 3). I have been the Mowbray Public School Parents and Citizens (P&C) President at Mowbray since October 2017.

The P&C are involved in a range of things, including; school fundraising, music programs, canteen and running the uniform shop to name just a few. More importantly, we are a bridge to the school and department administrations to present ideas and concerns on any other aspects of the school.

All the P&C people are parent/community volunteers and all P&C profits from fundraising and services goes directly to the school to help with things like buying learning resources and books; subsidising support staff or helping provide a safe and happy environment for our kids to learn and grow.

However, for the P&C to be able to properly represent the school community we need your support. We really do understand that everyone is busy and that different people feel comfortable contributing in different ways. That is why we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to contribute.

  • The P&C have a formal meeting at the school library twice a term. The meeting runs through a formal agenda and we action/vote on each item and discuss any new issues that come up (assuming we have time). This meeting is open to everyone and we urge you all to come along and have a look.
  • Get involved by joining one of the school committees, becoming a class parent, helping out at the canteen, or uniform shop.
  • Visit us on the Mowbray Public School Families & Friends facebook page to get the latest news updates and join in related discussions. (This is a private forum so you will have to answer a few questions to verify yourself).

So welcome to the P&C website. Take a look around and if you find something of interest, reach out to one of us. If you see us around the school, feel free to introduce yourself and discuss any aspect of the school that you are interested in. If you can, get involved. However you choose to reach out, we’d love to hear from you.
