In spite of current constraints, Friends of Mount House, the parent-staff association is still very much active and looking forward to creating real and virtual opportunities for bringing the school community together this year.
Over the forthcoming terms we are hoping to help develop a programme of online talks for parents providing insights into the pastoral curriculum running at the school, and support social enterprise activities being developed by students.
Parent volunteers are also needed from a wide variety of industries to provide careers talks to students and participate in a planned summer Careers Fair. We also have some social events pencilled in for later in 2021, including the traditional Easter Egg hunt for students and a quiz night for parents in the summer term.
If you are interested in helping out with any of these activities, or have other suggestions, we are very keen to hear from you! We are also looking for parents to volunteer as class reps to help support FOMH activities, and for additional committee members (particularly from year groups 10 and 13, who are not currently represented). Keith Brueton (a Year 8 parent), is acting as Chair of the association whilst Miss Smyth is on maternity leave, and Julie Westmore (Year 9 parent) is the Committee Secretary. Please do contact either of them if you are able to contribute any ideas or time firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
