The MHSOBA is an organisation that aims to assist the School and former students. Many of its members giveexpert advice when called upon; others provide services to the School.Membership can help students survive and thrive throughout their university and working life. It is a unique opportunity to contribute and network. We encourage all current and former students to become members of the MHSOBA to help ensure that these strong associations with the School are maintained and our provision of quality programs can continue.

The Melbourne High School Foundation is the fundraising arm of Melbourne High School.  The Foundation is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. Government funds do not cover the cost of providing the exceptional education for which Melbourne High School is known. The mission of the Foundation is to provide assistance to MHS; in particular to past, present and future students and staff. The Foundation also focuses on building and fostering our relationships with donors and members of the community.

Friends of Music (FOM) is made up of parents of Melbourne High School students who are studying or playing music and / or who are involved in one of the many ensembles or choral groups. FOM is open to all MHS parents who share our love for all things relating to music and who would like to assist.

Melbourne High School values parental involvement in whatever form it can take. One way to become involved in the School and make a major contribution to its ongoing development is through the active and friendly Parents' and Friends' Association (P&F). The P&F meets monthly on Mondays.

The Melbourne High School Rowing Fraternity is composed of past and present rowers, their parents and friends and works to support this highly successful program. In addition to coordinating special events such as the annual Captain of the Boats Dinner, the rowing fraternity raises funds through school community events such as movie nights.
