PARENTS AND CITIZENS (P&C) COMMITTEE
The Parents and Citizens (P&C) committee invites all parents to attend meetings which occur twice per term during Week 3 and 7 of each term, commencing at 7.00pm in the McCusker Boardroom in the Beasley Building.The meetings conclude at approximately 8.30pm.
The P&C is a school-based organisation with membership open to parents, teachers, students and interested citizens. The P&C committee aims to:
- provide a platform to bring parents, citizens, students and teaching staff together;
- give parents a chance to be aware of all school activities;
- provide opportunity to contribute to the school's resources through various fundraising events; and
- involve parents in discussing how the money raised is spent.
P&C membership and participation in P&C meetings are voluntary. The P&C meetings provide great opportunity to meet other parents, hear about what is going on within the school and to voice your opinion on how P&C funds should be distributed. In addition, the Principal will report on school activities and be able to answer questions.

FRIENDS OF MUSIC GROUP
The Friends of Music Group (FMG) is a large and vibrant one, supporting and promoting the interests of Music students, Staff and the Music Department at Perth Modern School. If your child is in the Music Program in any ensemble, then you will be invited to join FMG to keep informed of Music events. A committee from FMG meets monthly and is a standing committee formed under the P&C.
Music students participate in many performances during the course of the school year, both in and out of school time. There are concerts, festivals, ensemble and small group opportunities for all students. The Friends of Music support the music program in many ways. At concerts FMG provide stage crew, catering, and front of house assistance. In addition FMG gives financial support to the Music Department through fundraising, promotions and manpower.
Email lists are collated and maintained by parent coordinators to communicate to parents/guardians of up coming events in their region and information from the Music Department. Parents of students in all music programs, on all instruments and in all ensembles are encouraged to keep in touch this way. Families are geographically widespread and email is essential for us to keep you informed.
The Chair of Friends of Music is Robyn Rochat [email protected]. Please email Robyn to be put in touch with your Area Coordinator. We also welcome those who would like to be kept informed of events in the outstanding Music Program at Perth Modern School.
