American Hot Dogs

We will be selling American Hot Dogs every Friday at a cost of $2. Please place your order at the canteen before school.

Friends of Waihopai School Inc (PTA)

We extend a warm welcome to all parents and caregivers of children new and old to our school.

Our aim, as a PTA, is to encourage interaction between parents, teachers and the community.

We are also responsible for some fundraising for specific purposes within our school during the year, the most recent being:

• Confidence Course located on the back field

• Classroom mid-winter and Christmas Activities

• Sound system, storage shelving and curtaining for the school hall

• Blackout curtains for classrooms with whiteboards

• Year 6 camp subsidy

Our most recent fundraiser was the selling of chocolate bars, which raised funds for another interactive whiteboard.

We run lunch orders (Noodles) every Friday lunchtime and School Disco’s during the year.

The Executive Committee consists of:

Chairperson Michelle Greenwood

Secretary Chris Heslin

Treasurer Carleen Witheford

Staff Rep Pam Soper

The committee consists of parents who attend the open monthly meetings, the Principal and Staff representative.

ALL PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS OF CHILDREN ATTENDING THE SCHOOL ARE AUTOMATICALLY MEMBERS OF THE PTA
