Parents and Teachers Association

Who We Are
Otumoetai PTA is made up of parents, carers and families of pupils or past pupils from the school. Our main goal is to fundraise for the school to provide equipment or activities that are not funded by the Board or Ministry of Education and work hard to organise and run multiple fun events throughout the year.
A representative from the school is present at all the meeting and provides the PTA with the opportunity to ask questions and build closer links with the school.
We meet on the 2nd Monday of every month in the staffroom at 7pm. If you would like to become part of this enthusiastic group please do come along – we would love to see you there!


What are we fundraising for?
For the previous 2 years we put a large portion of our funds towards the new playground that was installed last year - and is awesome! There is still some work to do around the playground area such as seating and some of our funds will go towards this.
We also receive requests for fund raising throughout the year and will subsidise many of the school activities such as Life Education lessons.
Note: all the money we raise from the pool keys goes directly back to the school for the upkeep of the pool. The pool costs around $8,000 per year and the pool key monies migh just cover half this amount.

If there is something you think your childs classroom or the school needs, please talk to your teacher or the PTA representative and they will pass on the request if appropriate.
