Grandparents Day – Baking

Grandparents Day is this Friday and the school puts on a morning tea for them. We are still in need of more baking to serve at this. If you are able to do some baking you can drop it off at the school kitchen between 8.30 and 9 on Friday Morning.

Thank you!

Walking School Bus

We would love to get these buses moving again and are still looking for a new Walking School Bus coordinator!

The coordinator;

  • Makes sure there is a leader for each line
  • Answers email queries about getting people added to the line
  • Coordinates with the school on who gets the ‘kiwi’ for the walking school bus recognition at assembly. 

If you think you could help please contact us at

PTA Secretary

We are still looking for someone to step in a take over the role of PTA secretary. You would need to attend meeting on the first Monday of the month and take minutes, as well as send out the agenda. It’s a great way to keep up with what is going on at the school and perfect for someone who likes to be ‘In the Loop’ without taking on other PTA responsibilities. If you are interested please contact us at
