What does the Home and School do?
The Home and School is the major fundraising group of the School. Its main role is to raise funds for items outside the Schools Ministry of Education budget; and those that would enhance our children's learning, the classrooms, the outdoor environment and the sporting and cultural dimensions of the school life. Another focus is to provide fun activities that bring together the pupils and families of our school to foster the community spirit. Some of these events serve not only as fundraising opportunities but have developed over the years to be integral parts of the schools social calendar and are looked forward to by everyone associated with school as well as the wider community. The Home and School relies on parents, staff, businesses and the community’s ongoing support and participation to achieve its goals.
When do we meet? Twice a term. Meetings are advertised in the newsletter and on the school app.
Where do we meet? We usually meet in the School Staff Room. Meetings are open to all parents and caregivers of the School.
