At Auckland College, we have a dedicated group of parents and teachers from across all year groups within our school who work together to organise activities and fundraising events for the school community.
The PTA aims to create links between home and school. Some of successful fundraising events over the past years have included: The Winter Gala; Cake sales; Film Nights; Book Raffles; Own-clothes days; Visits from Santa and The Easter Bunny with gifts for the children; as well as hosting the Summer Fair.
The money we have raised from the different forms of fundraising has provided a financial support to the school, enabling the school to purchase further educational equipment for our students. Some of these resources include Chrome books; Tablets for the Early Years classes; an electric piano for individual lessons; educational sessions by Zoo Lab; outdoor playing equipment and financial support with the cost of travel for school trips.
The PTA would be unable to offer such generous support to the school without the help of many parents, carers and friends who give up their time so willingly to assist the PTA team in their efforts.
