Get Involved

Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child’s education and to get to know the school staff and other parents.

Research shows that children benefit when their parents are actively involved in their education and school life. And at Mowbray, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved:

  • Class Parents – The class parents play an essential liaison role between teachers, parents, the school and the P&C. This is a fun and interactive role. A great way to get to know your child’s class, your teacher and being involved in the Mowbray School community. More Information
