Home and School

What is the Home and School?

The St Mary's Home & School is a committee of parents and caregivers of St Mary's school children, whose aim is to foster a closer relationship between the home and the school for the benefit of our children. The committee also forms an important link between the school and the wider community.

The Home & School organises fundraising events and members have a say in how funds are spent to best benefit our children.

Who can join?

All parents/whanau and caregivers are encouraged to participate in the Home & School. A committee is elected each year at the AGM held in March.

The Home & School committee is made up of several positions:

The Home & School are supported by the Principal and Teachers who also attend meetings.

Meetings are held for 1 hour once a month, usually after school. Dates are advertised in the School Newsletter and reminders & minutes emailed to parents on the contact list.

Input is invited from all families and an agenda is available before each meeting.

Recent projects funded by the Home & School include:
