School Community

Mount View Parents’ Association

Mount View Parents’ Association is comprised of parents, carers and friends of Mount View Primary School. They are brought together by common goal of wanting to be involved in making our children’s educational experience the best that it can possibly be. There are many good reasons to be involved with the Mount View Parents’ Association.

  • Research shows that children have better educational outcomes when they have parents who are actively involved with their child’s education.
  • Parents who are involved with the Parents’ Association have an opportunity to provide input of ideas and feedback at meetings.
  • Funds raised by the Parents Association support valuable projects around the school.
  • The Parents’ Association provides an opportunity to meet and connect with other parents, which is valuable in such a large school.

All parents and guardians of Mount View Primary School students are automatically members of the Parents’ Association and can choose to participate in activities at whatever level is suitable.
