Welcome to the Halswell School PTA. We are a group of representative parents that work alongside the teachers and Board of Trustees to help create an exceptional learning environment for our children.

We encourage parents within the school community to come to our meetings in an informal capacity, as and when they can. It is a great opportunity to keep in touch with everything that is happening within the school and hear from our Principal, Stuart Cameron, about any upcoming developments.

Those who want to be even more involved can get behind the fundraising for specific projects or items. We have contributed to Art’s Suite equipment, sports uniforms, Year 8 leavers badges and classroom equipment, plus so much more.

The committee is responsible for the co-ordination of:

  • Weekly Tuck Shop and sausage sizzle
  • Road Patrol
  • Walk/Wheel Wednesdays
  • Discos
  • Sports uniforms
  • Fundraising e.g. calendars, Entertainment Book
  • Community Support, including Halswell Hearts

Activities

The following services are run by volunteers.  If you would like to be involved, please contact the coordinators listed below.  Generally, you will be required to help out once or twice a term.

Tuck Shop

Tuckshop orders are done online using Kindo.  Parents order and pay anytime until 11am Thursday, for delivery to school on Friday. Create an account for your child/children here http://kindo.co.nz/

Scholastic Book Club

Several times a year we send out the Scholastic Book Club forms to children throughout the school.  This gives you an opportunity to purchase books for your children, while also supporting our school library.  Michelle Grant organises the orders and a team of parent helpers unpack the books when they arrive at school.

Road Patrol

Road Patrol volunteers are rostered on to oversee the operation of the school crossing on Halswell Road. The duty time is from 8.25am to 9.00am.

Co-ordinator: Tracey Mora

Sausage Sizzles

The PTA provides a sausage sizzle on Wednesdays. Order in the hall kitchen before school on Wednesdays. Sausages are $2 and funds raised to support school activities such as camps.
