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 SEC has raised sufficient funds to purchase new playground equipment for the Prep and Year 3/4 playgrounds as well as funding the purchase of the massive multi age playground at the bottom of the oval. During 2013 - 2016 shade sails were purchase for all playgrounds using funds raised by the SEC. In 2017 the SEC raised funds to build a Bike Shed for use by all students and in 2018 SEC funds were used to update the school library which included new shelving for our book collection and a new Returns desk.

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