We have a vibrant PTA made up of parents, teachers, and friends of the school, who play an integral role in fundraising projects that benefit the school and the children. New parents, parents of existing children at school, whaanau, and extended family are welcome to come along to our monthly meetings, and we welcome your input.
The P.T.A. is supported by the Board of Trustees and Staff, and has raised funds for a number of school amenities; some of the past projects we have contributed to include the all-purpose turf in front of the hall, pergola for the Garden to Table outdoor area, sound system in the school hall, bike track, school pool, pool shade sail, interactive whiteboards, sports equipment and uniforms, books for the library, junior playground, hall curtains and carpet, and more iPads for the classrooms. With your help, initiatives, and support, we can continue to make our school a better place, and provide the very best for our children.
Meetings are held twice a term on Tuesday at 6.30 pm in the staff room and all are welcome.

We are always grateful for any help that you can offer. Helpers do not necessarily need to commit to attending meetings, or even to help with all fundraisers. If there is anything you would like to contribute, no matter how big or small, it would be really appreciated. If we are advertising a particular fundraiser that you think you'd like to lend a hand with just let us know!
Sustainable Fashion Show:
This year we had our Inaugural Sustainable Fashion Show where we raised over $11k for The Garden To Table classroom and outdoor dining area, we are looking to host this event every other year with the next in term 2 2024.
Gala: Every second year a Gala is held, this is a major fundraiser for the school raising approximately $20,000. The next gala will be held in March of 2023. This is always a great community day and requires helpers to assist with the smooth running.
We are always looking for business sponsors to help with the cost of bringing these activities to the Gala if you know of any businesses who may wish to be involved then please let the PTA know.
Children complete art in class that is put on a high-quality calendar for purchase. Orders will be taken at the end of Term 3 for delivery in Term 4 (in time for Christmas posting dates). These make great gifts!
Cookie Time Cookies:
Every Christmas we partner with Cookie Time to raise funds for ongoing school activities.
Our famous “Dads do movie night” sells out every term, a great night for the kids to relax and watch a movie while parents have some time to themselves.
