Who we are?
We are a group of parents who are genuinely interested in supporting our school and children through fundraising and social activities. Each year we create a calendar of fundraising activities. We meet two to three times a term to discuss and share what needs to be done to complete each of the fundraising activities. We assist with catering for special afternoon teas or meetings, and provide support to the school staff. We have an Annual General Meeting to elect a new committee in June each year.

What we do
As well as traditional activities like the Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day stalls, we hold an annual Twilight Fair in March. It is a brilliant evening of fun for the students, their families and the broader community. It provides the biggest fundraising event on our school calendar each year.
Other regular fundraising events include raffles, a Mango Drive, Bunnings Sausage Sizzle, Entertainment Books, Toy/Games/Puzzle catalogues and other activities and events as they arise.
New fundraising ideas are warmly welcomed!
What we have achieved
Most recently, the fantastic fundraising efforts of the Montrose Primary School community supported a significant upgrade to the main entrance of the school on Trevallyn Close, including asphalting, fencing and signage works.
We have also recently purchased two classroom sets of robotic Sphero Balls, fabulous new technology that allows the students to learn fundamentals of computer programming. They can be used to teach angles, prediction and have many applications.
Other significant projects of recent years include:
