Meetings

PTA meetings are held monthly on a Tuesday evening in the staffroom.  Dates are confirmed in the school newsletter and via Facebook.  Our meetings are informal and friendly, where we discuss all current business, make decisions about use of funds and plan events and support for school ventures.  All welcome - please come along, get involved with our projects and support your school!

 

Our Initiatives

During the year we achieve a lot for our wonderful school and its students.  In recent years we have achieved our goal of $24,000 for the Senior Playground 'rotating climber', built a new junior sandpit, funded the memorial garden and gifted money to several school groups and projects.

 

We look forward to organising student discos, sizzling sausages, fun family and community events, along with some new fundraising initiatives to ensure we can continue to fund equipment, programmes and events that are part of the school's strategic plan.

 

 

Get involved!

The PTA realise the importance of working with the school to fulfill the needs of our children and nurture them to become the best they can be, therefore we are also involved in non-profit events such as Grandparent's Day, athletics, working bees and the Home Learning Challenge celebration.

We still have copies of our popular school cook book "Waitakere on Plate" available for purchase at the office.  Over 200 pages of tried and true recipes and a real keepsake of our community. $25

We are delighted to promote the Awesome Inc Gratitude Journals to our school community.  Awesome Inc believe that gratitude is the secret to being happier and more resilient. Gratitude Journals are available in a range of designs for adults and kids. Our school receives 10% from every sale.
