St George Girls High School has had a Mothers’ Committee since the school began over 100 years ago.
When do we meet?
We meet on the first Wednesday morning of each month from 10am – 12 noon,
except during school holidays. The Principal attends every meeting, and often
another staff member, such as a Head Teacher, gives a presentation about an
aspect of the school curriculum or other relevant topic.
The meetings are an excellent way to learn about the school and a
valuable opportunity to ask questions of the Principal and Staff. They are held
in an informal atmosphere and are a terrific way to get to know your daughter’s
school and other parents.
What does the Committee do?
As well as providing a forum for liaison between parents and the school,
the Committee has a major fundraising function through the co-ordination of the
Uniform Shop. All profits raised from the shop are returned to the school and
are used to fund necessary projects or purchase equipment for the school. The
Committee also contributes to school life by organising the annual Mother-Daughter
dinner and providing representatives on staff selection and annual report
review panels. The Mothers’ Committee is a wonderful way to participate in your
daughter’s school life.
Our uniform shop co-ordinator is Cathy
Anderson. If you’d like to volunteer, she can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0423
information regarding the school uniform can be found on the school website at
Our School – Uniform, along with a full price list, ordering information, and
