PTA

Mapua School is fortunate to have an energetic and highly motivated PTA.

The PTA provides a very important communication link between parents, staff and Board of Trustees. It provides a forum for parents and staff to meet, it organises selected social events to foster community spirit within the school and is also an important fundraising body. They provide many extras for our children – things that our school budget simply could not provide. The PTA has been responsible for the purchase of many computers, iPads, library books, sports equipment, playground equipment and classroom furniture.

Everyone is welcome to be part of the PTA. It is an excellent forum to meet people and become involved in the school. We try to keep the meetings short and usually involve wine and food!  If you are keen to get involved, just want to check it out, or are needing an excuse to get out of putting the kids to bed – come along!

Role

The role of the PTA is to

encourage & support communication between home & school;
help build a sense of community at our school;
and to raise funds, through school events & promotions, to supplement those received from school donations & MOE grants.
