PTA

The purpose of the PTA is to create a close association between parents and the school.

The main functions of the PTA are:

  • to be a representative group of parents for consultation with the school
  • to act as a sounding board for any changes in the school
  • to keep the Principal aware of parents’ perspectives on school matters
  • interacting with the parent community and staff by serving tea and coffee at parent evenings, report evenings etc (as requested by the school)
  • bringing the school community together at social events by organising various activities
  • running the second-hand uniform sale days
  • helping with new uniform sales in January

There is very little focus on fundraising – we rather like to consider the PTA activities as ‘fun’ raising events.

All are welcome to attend our meetings:

  • 19 September 2017, in the Boardroom
  • 17 October 2017, 6:00pm in the staffroom
  • 21 November 2017, 7.30pm-9.00pm in the staffroom

NOTE: After school hours the front doors to the administration building will be locked. To gain entry to the staffroom, please enter through the doors on the opposite side of the admin block.

We are always looking for new active members – please consider joining.

For further information, please contact the school on 348 5073 or email: pta@riccarton.school.nz

SECONDHAND UNIFORM SALES

  • The PTA sells second-hand uniforms on behalf of families.
  • Any uniform pieces for sale can be dropped off at the main office during term time. Downloading the second-hand uniform resale form and having it already filled out will speed up the drop-off process.
  • We have two uniform sales at the beginning of the year, dates will be advertised in the school newsletter. At these sales Argyle (uniform providers) will also be present to assist with the sizing of new uniforms. There will be access to a computer to order new uniforms online if you wish.
  • We accept all items of the school uniform for sale as long as it is in an acceptable condition. When filling out the form, please note the type of uniform piece and size it is ie: short sleeved striped girl’s blouse. If in doubt visit Argyle’s website for more information on the item.
  • We also hold limited stock of new red ties that can be purchased.
  • Payment for the second-hand uniforms can be cash or eftpos.
