The next PFA meeting will be the Annual General Meeting which will be held on Thursday 12th May at 9am in the Davey Building Conference Room (school administration building).   This is a great opportunity to meet new parents, staff and a place where you can share your ideas for fundraising and how you would like to see the money raised to be spent on your children.  All parents are encouraged to attend and toddlers are welcome.

Road Safety around Miners Rest Primary School and Kindergarten

As a representative group of the MRPS K-6, we have been asked to express many families’ concerns of the driving and road safety awareness of parents/carers/guardians and students alike. 


Did you know:

  • that the end of the cul-de-sac at the kinder is a NO STANDING zone, which means you cannot drop your children off here; 
  • the one-way Dundas Street was made for the safety of all road users – please do not do a u-turn and drive the wrong way to park in front of the school; 
  • there is a NO STANDING zone along the front of the school – please do not park and drop your children off, or call them to cross the road to jump in the car. 

We as parents/carers/guardians, need to be modelling correct driver and pedestrian behaviours for the safety of all road users. We feel there will be an accident in the very near future unless behaviours change immediately.

Cookbooks – Grow, Harvest, Prepare, Share - $5 per book

The Parents and Friends Association have produced this beautiful, full colour cookbook printed on luxurious high quality paper. This fantastic book is sure to last a lifetime, making it a great memento from our school, kindergarten and community of Miners Rest. All recipes featured in the book have been tried and tested.  The cook book will be selling for $5.

Student Display Folders

Through the PFA, we also have Student Display Folders for sale for $15 each. These are

great for storing your child's reports, achievement certificates etc. Both the Display Folders and Cookbooks are available from the School General Office. 







School Lunches – Monday and Thursday through 

Lunches need to be ordered online through the website Please note: sauce is provided in each classroom, and you cannot specify which colour donut.  Some days, not all items are available or sell out quickly. We recommend to try and order as early as possible, with orders closing at 8.30am on the day of delivery. Please update your child’s profile to reflect the correct teacher and room (this saves a lot of time when the caterers are distributing the lunches into the classroom containers).
