SEC

 Each year at MMPS a group of interested parents form our Social Events Committee (SEC). The President of the SEC becomes a member of School Council and attends School Council meetings throughout the year. There are approximately 8 School Council meetings per year.

 

Each month the SEC meet to discuss and plan events for the enjoyment of our whole school community. These activities range from morning tea for new parents to whole school activities like the annual Carnivale. A calendar of events is planned early each year and members of the SEC assist with the organisation of these events. Some committee members may only be involved in the organisation of one particular event due to family or other committments.

 

Involvement in the SEC is a great way to get involved with parents at our school. Aside from helping to bring our community together to celebrate learning at MMPS the funds raised by the SEC each year assist the school to purchase much needed equipment. Since 2011 the PTA has raised sufficient funds to purchase new playground equipment for the Preps and Year 5 and 6 children. In 2013 PTA funds have been used to purchase Shade sails for the Prep playground area. During 2014 - 2016 shade sails were purchase for all playgrounds using funds raised by the SEC (formerly PTA). In 2017 the SEC is proudly funding a Bike Shed for use by all students and a large mulit age playground at the Glenisla Avenue end of the school oval.

 

Parents can join at any time during the year. Regular SEC updates are promoted in the school newsletter every week.
