About the P&F
What is Mary’s Mount Primary School’s P&F?
The P&F stands for ‘Parents & Friends’ and is open to all parents and friends of the Mary’s Mount Primary School community.
P&F meetings are a great place to find out what is happening in the school, gain a better understanding about school policies and activities, make a comment, raise a concern or ask a question, and get to know other parents in our school community.
At Mary’s Mount Primary School, the P&F and the school have a very close and positive relationship. The P&F is one avenue you may like to explore to support the school in making Mary’s Mount Primary School an even better place for your children and our students.
