PTA

We have an enthusiastic group of parents and teachers who form our PTA. They meet monthly to discuss ways in which to support our most precious taonga, our children. Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings.

Board Games

With the change of season upon us, the P.T.A. are asking if anyone has indoor toys / games / activities that you are happy to donate to the school. These are for our students to use during wet and cold winter days.

Please bring them into the office.

Around the Mountain Relay

Last year the PTA organised and entered a team in the Around the Mountain relay. Everyone who was a part of the team, supporters and runners or walkers, really enjoyed this event. Even Father Vijay ran a leg of it! Father Vijay was interviewed at the finish line about being a running priest!

The painting of the front court.

Thanks to the PTA for organising the front court to be painted into various games and activities. Funds were accumulated from various fundraisers over the year to pay for this. The children are really enjoying playing a variety of different games on the front court now.
