The Music Parents Committee (MPC) extends a warm welcome to all parents of students in the music program. We are confident that like us, you will find your child has accepted the chance to be involved in a very exciting and challenging high school education. As parents we have the opportunity to watch our children participate in fantastic experiences and be part of a talented and committed group of students. We also have a chance to give back to the school in order to enhance the opportunities and experiences that the school is able to provide for music students.
Each Music Parent is expected to volunteer at least twice during the year in order to enhance Churchlands' vibrant music programme. Music parents work together to support the teachers and the program in many ways, from taking photos and preparing the newsletter, to helping out as stage crew or with parking, to selling snacks at the kiosk and alcohol and other beverages at the bar. By participating in events in various ways, parents get to know each other and the staff, joining a welcoming community and rewarding partnership.
A committee of office bearers and coordinators is formed each year to oversee the various fundraisers and other tasks parents perform for the School of Music. Meetings are held at 7:30 pm on Monday nights in Weeks 2 & 7 of every term. In 2019:
- Term 1 – 11 February Annual General Meeting (AGM) and 18 March
- Term 2 – 6 May and 10 June
- Term 3 – 29 July and 2 September
- Term 4 – 21 October and 25 November
Meetings take place in the Choral Studio beside the Concert Hall. All music parents are welcome to attend. Office bearers are elected at the AGM, which is the first meeting of the year (11 February).

Churchlands music students are successful in many musical and non-musical fields and occupations around the world. We are interested in keeping in touch with our music alumni. We'd love you to keep in touch by register through our Alumni database.
