PaTs Team

Our PaTs (Parents and Teachers) team (formally PTA - Parent Teacher Association), is one way you can get involved and help our school. This is a dedicated, hard working group of mums (Dad's and other caregivers also welcome) who work throughout the year on fundraising events.

The general organisation of the PaTs team is that each team member has a focus on a particular event and working in sub committees throughout the year. This means no one person is left to do all the work for every event. Members are expected to specifically engage in events and fulfill shared expectation agreements.

If you are new to our school and are keen to join a hardworking proactive team of parents who; actively promote our school in a positive manner at all times; supports the B.O.T.’s direction; work collaboratively to raise money; and organise school events….contact us on admin@riverhead.school.nz

The first meeting for 2020 is Tuesday 25th February at 6:30pm. The meeting will take place in the staffroom.

Fundraising

The main objective of the PaTs team is to raise funds for Riverhead School in line with our strategic direction.

This means the aim of the fundraising each year has a main focus, which is discussed and agreed upon by the Board of Trustees.

This year the Board of Trustee focus is “Creating and Enhancing Outdoor Learning Spaces”. In particular, developing the area behind our Kapia block into space that is usable for our learners.
