Home and School

Welcome to the

Home and School Committee page!


The East Taieri Home and School Committee has held the AGM for the year, so now is a good time to introduce ourselves to the school community. The Home and School Committee supports the school via fundraising events throughout the year. We help provide funds for school expenses which are not covered by normal school funding.

Examples from the last years include contributions to:

– Swimming buses

– An extra day for Chatbus (sadly no longer available)

– Playground equipment

– Leavers books

– Prizes for school events, such as the poetry competition, talent quest & stars on stage

– Money for teachers to provide extra resources as they see fit for their classrooms

– Specialist reading resources

– Library books

– Heat pumps

– Major contribution to the innovative learning environment in rooms 7 and 8

We also run the uniform shop, where good quality school uniform can be purchased and sold.

This coming year will again be challenging, with Disco’s and lunchtime BBQ’s on hold until covid settles down. We hope to be able to run calendar art, pies and pizza, quiz nights and some more amazing raffles later in the year. We currently have the Entertainment Book available, along with the Honey Fundraiser.

If you would like to be part of the committee or even volunteer occasionally when we need helpers, please get in touch, we always welcome new (vaccinated) faces with different skills and ideas. We meet once a month on a Wednesday evening, next meeting is 6pm on 13 April in the school staff room.

Finally, we would like to thank the outgoing members, in particular Chairman Kurt Laurie, who has been an exceptional leader over the past years.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards

Anita Loughrey – Chairperson – loughrey999@gmail.com

Kirsty Clark – Treasurer

AJ Dowding – Secretary
