What is the PTA

We are a group of parents, caregivers and staff with a desire to nurture a sense of belonging within the Te

Ahi Kaikōmako Rolleston School community. We aim to provide ways for families to engage and connect

with the school and one another, and to help give our children access to a wider range of learning resources

and opportunities by organising fundraising initiatives.

We run regular events through the year such as termly sausage sizzles, a disco and second hand uniform

sales. We also aim to run community events and support local businesses where we can, eg. through our

November Raffle Calendar, and our Midweek Treat scheme.

Our fundraising has enabled us to contribute to the supply of school chrome books so parents are not

required to provide devices for their children. Other examples of funding include wet weather play and sports

equipment, treats for school fun days, and purchasing the slide for the new playground, and a contribution

towards the school tunnelhouse. We have also subsidised swimming, gymnastics and ice skating lessons.

There are many ways you can get involved, and we value all contributions! If you are interested in finding out

more about the school and would like to get to know some more of our community, come along to one of our

monthly meetings on a Monday evening. You’ll receive a warm welcome, a cuppa and home baking!

If you are willing to be involved in any of our events but would rather not attend meetings, please send us an

email and we can put you on our mailing list:

We appreciate your support and look forward to meeting you!

Warm regards,

Ellie Moe and Nicky O’Sullivan

Who are we?

We are a group of parents/caregivers that work alongside the school and the Board of Trustees to organise activities and fundraise for the benefit of our children and the school environment.

Why Be Involved?

*Research has shown that children whose parents are involved in the school tend to do better academically, socially and emotionally

*View school from a new and different perspective

*Show your children you are interested in the their learning

*Gain a better understand of how the school operate

Good communication and involvement are the cornerstones of an effective home – school partnership!

Our Motto; ‘Work Smarter, Not Harder’

As parents we are all busy, no matter what our occupation!

Rolleston School PTA does not send home raffles or chocolates for you to sell!
