How Can I Contribute?

Our school has a very strong support base from parents involved in our PTA.  The PTA (Parent & Teachers Association) is a committee, which serves the school and community through social and educational activities that will encourage unity and harmony.  The committee plays an integral role in fundraising ventures, which benefit the school and the children.

The committee is a wonderful way to put some positive energy into supporting Whakarongo School.  Meetings are held regularly during the term.  If you would like to find out more or get involved, either visit our page on Our PTA or contact the school office at office@whakarongo.school.nz.
