Meetings and Events
PTA meetings are held twice a term in the college staffroom (week 2 and week 8) starting at 6.30pm. Week 2 is a standard administrative meeting and week 8 an information evening designed to both entertain and inform parents and the wider school community on topics that are relevant and current. Check the school calendar and “follow” the PTA Facebook Page for dates of upcoming meetings.
All parents are encouraged to come along, meet other parents and learn about what’s going on at the school. There are several social functions during the year including the annual PTA Quiz night fundraiser. A lot of fun is had by all!
Next meeting is on Monday 30 July, at 6.30pm in the college staffroom. All welcome.
Support From the PTA

- Students – this includes teams and/or individuals who represent the College in a wide range of activities both nationally and internationally.
- College – this money provides extra classroom equipment to enhance learning, sports equipment and other items that improve the school surroundings for students and staff.
- Special projects – such as contributions to the Gibbons Trade Education Centre, the new Whare -Te Ara Poutama or assistance towards the maintenance of Mataki Lodge.
Applications for financial assistance from the PTA need to be made to the College Management Team.
