New Parents

Welcome to our school! We’re a pretty friendly bunch, and we’re happy to help you settle in.

Keep in touch

  • Download the QSchools app from itunes or google play. Our school uses this app regularly, and it’s great for accessing contact info, tuckshop menus, uniform shop, calendar items, etc.
  • Subscribe to the School Newsletter, which will also include updates about P&C activities.
  • Like us on Facebook – MRSS P&C – to keep up to date on what’s going on around the school.
  • There is a Facebook group for each year level and even a group for MRSS Prep 2019 – organising a few park playdates before school starts, as well putting up lots of useful information, like uniform shop times, reminders for tuckshop, etc.
  • Join the class contacts lists and P&C mailing list to receive information for your class, and the wider school community.
  • Come to Tea and Tissues – a morning tea held straight after drop-off on the first day of school.
  • Attend the term 1 Welcome BBQ – held a few weeks after term starts.
