Meet the PTA

We are an enthusiastic and active group of parents who raise additional funds for the school.

The PTA Unishop is open for parents and whanau to purchase items of uniform on:

The last Friday of each month from 3.00 - 4.00pm

One of our main ways of helping the school is providing funding for extra resources for the different departments within the school.  This year we have provided almost $20,000 which has gone towards:

– Books for year 7s and 8s, Cameras for the English Department, Sports jackets for use by teams, coaches and managers

– Games, cameras and DVDs for the Language Department,  Projector for  the Technology Department, Follow Spot lights for the Performing Arts,  Games for use in the Library at lunchtime

We raise the funds through donations to the PTA which is on the School Accounts, managing the Unishop and fundraising, which we try to keep to one or two a year.

We would welcome new parents on to the PTA, bringing fresh ideas or helping out. We meet approximately twice a term on a Monday evening at 7pm.  If you would like to join our committee or find out some more about us please contact: Margaret Flannery 021 239 5021
