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.

Book Fair

The annual book fair takes place this year during the week of Monday 19th October through to Tuesday 27th October.

All books are on display in the School Library. You are able to purchase items by Eftpos in the school office.

The proceeds from the book fair are used to stock our library, for prize giving book prizes and for Buzzy Bee award prizes.

It would be awesome to see you all at this event.

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.
