We would like to give a warm welcome to our newly elected PTA Members. We are excited about all the wonderful activities and events they will host this year.
What is Matakana School PTA?
We are a group who are passionate about our school ensuring our children have wonderful memories of their days at Matakana School. Memories as simple as starting the school day to a Jump Jam DVD, grooving at the PTA disco, a special Year 6 Leaver's t-shirt or a simple ice block at a sporting event. All PTA organised fundraising events make these
What is the role of the PTA at Matakana School? Unlike some other schools, the PTA at Matakana School is not a major fundraising machine. Some of the events we organise do raise minor funds but these are reinvested to fund other PTA initiatives. Nor does our PTA have a conditional membership: if you are a parent of a child at Matakana then you are already considered a member of our PTA. The Matakana School PTA is rather a Parent/Caregiver Support Group, whose aim is to initiate and run events and activities that otherwise wouldn’t occur at the school. These are not must-haves but they are invaluable in helping to create a little bit of magic and engendering a sense of pride and belonging in the children. They also present all the school families with an opportunity to muck in and get involved in the school community at whatever level they are able. One of our most important aims is to continue to grow and nurture the great positive community we have within the school and out in our community. The school profile is heightened in the wider community when people see our school running yet another successful event with an enthusiastic and motivated team of parents, staff and students.
What is your contribution? Our parents/caregivers band together and show their passion for our school and our children, so we encourage every parent, grandparent, and any other adult that plays a significant role in a child's life to find out what the PTA does and contribute where they can. It is your involvement that will help our school, and school community, continue to thrive.
We'd love to see you!
If you are interested in joining the PTA please chat to Helena in the school office or come to the next meeting and see if it’s for you. Everyone is always welcome and we are always looking for new fresh ideas. If you are not excited about attending meetings, or have other commitments, but would like to be involved in other ways, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the PTA contact the team care of email@example.com or at the school office.
