The Tauriko School PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a team of like-minded parents, caregivers and teachers who get together to fundraise for some of the extras that make our school a great place to be - things that make life fun, interesting or more easily accessible for our children aswell as helping to build and strengthen our community, so our families feel more connected to the school.
As for all volunteer groups, the PTA work to the philosophy that ‘many hands make light work’ and as such are looking for new faces and fresh enthusiasm. Being part of the PTA is a great way to get involved and meet new people especially if you are new to the school. The PTA meet once a month in the evening to share ideas and plan for upcoming events. Please don’t be put off if you work - some members work full time, some work part time and some are stay at home parents. It is a great mix of people!
Tauriko School also has in place RAFT (Relations and Friends of Tauriko) – a group of parents, grandparents or caregivers that are willing to be contacted to possibly help out a couple of times a year for events, i.e. help out at the sausage sizzle on Cross Country day, or provide some baking for the annual quiz night, or deliver flyers to promote school events, or help make milo’s on Milo and Marshmallow night. Tasks that are not too onerous but make a big difference to making events happen!
If you are interested in becoming part of the PTA or RAFT please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
