Who are the Friends of Mitchell Conservatorium?
• Equivalent to a school P&C, the ‘Friends’ committee is comprised of family members of students and interested supporters from the community from the four campus areas.
What is the role of the Friends group?
• The Friends generously assists students by actively supporting our music teaching, performance, administration and workshop programs.
• Fund raising is a large part of the annual work of the Friends.
How does the Friends group raise funds?
• A small Family levy, (one per family), is collected on behalf of the Friends.
• Replacing other fund raising activities, the levy is collected twice annually (GST incl.).
How does the Friends group use the funds raised?
• MitCon Friends allocates family levy funds to assist the students by offering annual Scholarship and Bursaries to our students.
Can I become a Friend?
• Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join their local Friends group.
