Community

Mentone Girls’ Grammar is very proud of the community of parents, friends and alumnae and the engagement and support that everyone offers both the School and our girls’.

Our Parents’ Association has three purposes: We ‘friend raise’, we have ‘fun’ and we ‘fund raise’ throughout the year to provide additional equipment and services to the School.

‘Friend raising’ is important, as it allows you, as parents / carers, to feel part of the School community and have some fun along the way. By involving yourself in the School community, you help to enhance the support network around your daughter and you have many opportunities to meet and enjoy new friends.

Each year the PA organises a range of events including a new parents’ welcome function, Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day stalls, social events, end of year Christmas Celebration and much more! They also provide BBQs and/or refreshments at school events such as Big Art and school productions.

The PA establishes a Class Representatives network (at least two, or more, parent representatives for each year level). This network provides vital links between the School, the PA Executive, and the students and their families. It promote news of events, helps organise functions and encourages participation across all year levels. Be sure to get to know your class representatives, as they are a great source of information and activity.

Old Girls’ Club

Once a Mentone Girl... always a Mentone Girl! Our alumnae play a vital role in the life blood of our community and are important role models for current and future generations of Mentone Girls.

Our Old Girls are represented in a myriad of professions around the world. Each year, we run a number of career-related events for our current students. If you would like to participate in one of these events, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Remarkable Women Gala Event

Mentone Girls’ Grammar is proud to recognise the outstanding achievements and contributions of our Old Girls. Every two years, we hold a spectacular event to honour Old Girls who are recognised for excellence in their field and we induct them into our Remarkable Women Hall of Fame.
