P&C NOTES The MHS P&C Association warmly welcome new members and old to our AGM that will be held in the school library on Monday 8th March from 6pm. The current executive team will step down at the AGM and we will re elect a new President, two Vice Presidents, a Treasurer, and a Secretary. We will also like to offer opportunities for members to form subcommittees like fundraising; parent forums and convening the network meetings. Thus there is plenty of opportunity to contribute a bit or a lot of your time and energy to certain initiatives. Our P&C has a fun and relaxed feel and offers you a positive and rewarding experience being a member. Please come and experience it yourself. For this meeting we will just be meeting in person rather than setting up a simultaneous zoom meeting. Thus if you still want to join and be part of the association please send your apologies if you can’t attend and we will keep you in the loop. For future meetings, during the year, we will likely have zoom meetings and the possibility of meeting in person if Covid protocols allow. You can become a member for the year at our AGM or alternatively if you would like a membership form in the meantime, please email the P&C address below and we can send you one electronically. The cost of membership is just $2.00 and gives you voting rights at our meetings. Are you interested in knowing what’s happening but can’t make meetings?
