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.

Moree Public School has a proud history of providing education in the Moree community.

The P&C also raises funds that help finance improvements to our school and provide additional resources.

The P&C is made up of parents of students at the school.  The monthly meetings give an insight into school happenings.  They allow parents to discuss issues, raise concerns related to the school and plan events.

The Fundraising Committee generally have six major activities through the year.  These often provide an opportunity to get together with other parents.  The funds raised go directly to our school and benefit all of our students.

The MPS newsletter often contains information about P&C fundraising events and scheduled meetings.
