Generally, we use the same forms of communication for all our announcements so it is good to ensure you know about these, as they give you the latest information about the events and happenings at MPS.
Mt Pleasant School App: This can be downloaded from the app store and is available for Android and iPhone users. This allows you to subscribe to different groups you are interested in and to receive alerts as soon as they are sent out – search for “Mt Pleasant School”;
