Roto-o-Rangi School

Parent Teacher Association (PTA) 

Chairperson:   Jo Kavermann                                         

Secretary:        Cathy Phillips        

Treasurer:        Harland Sinclair

The PTA is a group of enthusiastic parents who meet regularly to organise fundraising events to provide resources for the school that are not covered by the school's operating budget.  Often PTA fundraising provides additional equipment and assistance towards larger projects for the school which ensures we maximise the opportunities we offer our students. 
The PTA supports the school to organise various events and provides the manpower to assist with these events, including Ag Day and working bees to help maintain the school facilities.  This support helps the school to hold larger events for our students and local community to participate in. 
The BOT (Board of Trustees) is the governing body of the school and the PTA operates under their position.  All resources purchased and events organised are to support the BOT achieve the Vision and Strategic Plan of the school. 

How Can You Help?
"Many hands make light work"

- Assisting at events; setting up, marshalling, manning the sausage sizzle
- Baking for raffles & events, or donating items
- Coaching or helping with sports teams 
- Joining our committee 
- Sponsoring, or encouraging others to sponsor, a team, event or items needed for school.

Upcoming Events

Working Bee 1st October 2022

Our Working Bee will be held on Saturday 1st of October, the day after school breaks up for the term. We will be repainting the cubbies, poles around the courts, bollards, games on the concrete such as Hopscotch, and giving the outside of the building a wash down. We will start at 9.00 till around 4ish, so if you have a spare hour or two to pop down throughout the day it would be amazing. We will organize for the water blasting to be done before hand so we can focus on the painting.

Ag Day 21st October 2022

We may need some helpers on Ag Day at school on Friday 21st October, and also Group Day the following week which is held at the Hautapu Rugby Grounds. Please get in touch if you can offer us some help, which may include marshalling, supporting the children, and serving refreshments.

Recent Events and Acknowledgments

Bookarama, Clothing Sale and Tractor Pull

The PTA fundraising efforts in Term 2 were outstanding! The  Bookarama and Winter Clothing  sale  We didn't have a great amount of foot traffic and sales on the day, so extended it to the following day, and continued with online sales on local Facebook buy and sell pages. All up we raised just  over  $1100, which was awesome. 

Local firm RD3 Contracting invited us to sell food at their annual Tractor Pull during the Term 2 holidays - thank you to former parent Aaron Judd for inviting us to do this! We raised a total of just over $1160!

A huge Thank You to all the parents and whaanau who have given up their time to help with these fundraisers. Our Junior children are very thankful for the books purchased using these funds, and the ropes in the adventure playground will be replaced using some of the funds too.
