Kia ora Koutou and a warm welcome to all whanau, parents and caregivers of our tamariki and children at Waihopai School.

Friends of Waihopai are a parent group that meet monthly to support our wonderful teaching team and school.

We support our school with purchasing equipment and resources they may need over the teaching year. To do this we come together to seek ideas on how we can get our Waihopai community together to share resources, fundraise and network to achieve outcomes that can further resource our school.

So how can you get involved and support Waihopai School?
