Our PTA Key Roles
Support the school positively so that school staff can implement an effective teaching and learning programme in an excellent environment for the best student outcomes.
Consult with school community, School Board and staff to set funding goals from year to year.
Actively fundraise within the community to achieve those goals.
Assist with setting up courses for parents.
Represent the views of members to appropriate quarters. 
Be involved in activities that improve the school environment (e.g. working bees) and participate in general school events.

All children and staff at our school belong to one of our School Whānau Groups. Each Whānau Group includes children from throughout the whole school, from New Entrants to Year 8. During the year, the Whānau leaders organise activities so that children get to know others throughout the school. Each School Whānau Group is named after a Dominican  saint, and each is connected with a maunga (mountain) in our region.
