Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

Visit the P&C website for more information.

The Mosman High School Parents & Citizens Association provides an opportunity for parents and community members to play a part in the educational experiences of MHS students.

The P&C provides a forum to consider options for supporting staff, students and other parents as we work together to create a centre for educational excellence.

It is the aim of the P&C to facilitate communication between school and parents and to assist both parents and staff to better understand and meet the needs of Mosman High School students. Parents and community members are encouraged to become active contributors to the development of the MHS community.

Meetings: We encourage parents to come along to P&C meetings to mix with other parents and members of staff to understand what is going on within the school community.

When: 3rd Thursday of the month during term at 7.00pm

Where: The school library is situated directly above the administration office. Parking in the school grounds is usually available. Use the outside stairs or the lift inside the admin block to access the library.
