Parents & Friends Committee

The role of the Parents & Friends Committee at Perth Montessori is to share in the school’s vision by enabling the community to be involved with events and activities that ultimately support our students in their learning journey. 

The Parents & Friends Committee (P&F) is operated by the Montessori Children's Centre Foundation Inc. (Foundation), a not-for-profit association incorporated in Western Australia and registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (registration details). The Foundation is a separate and independent entity from Perth Montessori School Inc. that has its own constitution and governing body called the Executive Council.

April 2022 Paint with Melski

The P&F hasn't been able to organise and run events for a while due to COVID-19 restrictions, however, some of its members have still been working hard on other projects for the School.  In particular, the painting of the landmark mural on the front facade of the campus.

The mural was made possible by a Place Grant from the Town of Victoria Park, which allowed the School to commission the well-known artist Mel McVee (Melski).  Melski worked with the School to develop a design that incorporated some of the characteristic flora and fauna found in the local area.

As part of the painting of the mural, members of the P&F organised a Community Painting Day as part of the Town of Victoria Park's April Art Season celebrations to allow students, staff and members of the wider community to participate.

Two Years of COVID-19

For the last two years since March 2020, it has proven difficult for the P&F to maintain its regular organisational meetings and hosting of School events.  However, now that parents are allowed back on campus in Term 2 2022, we can rebuild the P&Fs active membership and begin hosting some fun activities on campus to bring our community back together.  Please watch this space...
