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?
We have done really well with helping fund playground development over the last few years and now have a very ambitious project underway. We have begun, with the Board of Trustees, to raise funds to provide an all-weather cover for the tiger turf area. This is a major undertaking and we anticipate it being a 3 - 4 year project.

We continue to subsidize whole school events making them accessible to all children. We have also put funding towards the purchase of chromebooks/IT in the senior school

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.
