The Miles Franklin Parents and Citizens Association Incorporated has a social and educational role within the school. Socially it organises functions to bring the school community together and in its educational role it organises speakers, discusses general matters affecting the school, comments on Directorate proposals, works closely with both the school executive and the School Board and collaborates with the ACT P&C Council. Being a parent or guardian of a student enrolled at MFPS qualifies you to be a member of the P&C.
The P&C works with the school to fundraise for school key projects. Fundraising events in recent years have included; the school fete, school disco, election day BBQ's, Mothers and Fathers Day Stalls.
The P&C have obligations in the running of the School Canteen/Uniform Shop, Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) Service, and Music Scheme including the Miles Franklin Music Festival.
A volunteer subcommittee is involved with Preschool. Fundraising activities such as a Fun Day, are organised throughout the year by our Preschool parents. The Fun Day is a highlight on the school calendar as it brings current preschool families and families from the next intake year together. Preschool parents are most welcome to join the Sub Committee in these activities.
P&C Committee meetings are usually held at 7pm on the Wednesday of Week 3 and Week 8 of each term, in the school meeting room. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in term 1 when the new committee is elected. The school newsletter gives details of meetings and events.
Parent or guardian volunteer representation in the main Committee and Sub Committees of the P&C is highly encouraged and appreciated. Your interest and involvement will be most welcomed.
