The Waiau Pa School PTA is a group of parents who are committed to providing support to Waiau Pa School – students, staff and families. Our aim is to work together to help our children and the school succeed. Our main focuses are to:

• fundraise for additional resources for the school
• be informative to the parent body about upcoming plans
• be a consultative group with which the school can discuss future plans & ideas
• promote positive interactions between families and the school

We meet once a month in the school staffroom (anyone is welcome to attend), either day & night to allow for most people to attend, however we know this can be difficult. The aim is to keep meetings to 1 hour duration.

The current office holders are:
Co-Chairpeople = Christine Talyancich & Hope Dufty
Co-Secretaries = Rochelle Yoakley & Kimberley Webster
Treasurer = Nadine Guy

We have the following events planned for the coming year (which may be subject to change):
• Fulton Swim School Triathlon (March 2017). Co-ordinator = Mel Travers
• Easter Egg Hunt (April 2017). Co-ordinator = Mel Travers
• Nothing Naughty Bars (May 2017). Co-ordinator = Rochelle Yoakley
• Sausage Sizzle (June 2017). Co-ordinator = Christine Talyancich
• Grandparents Day (June 2017). Co-ordinator = Christine & Hope
• Smencils/Smens Fundraiser (July 2017). Co-ordinator = Rochelle Yoakley

• Calf Club (Sept 2017). Co-ordinator = Sue Tappenden
• Kids Art Works (October 2017). Co-ordinator = Rochelle Yoakley
• Halloween Disco (October 2017). Co-ordinator = Christine & Hope

The co-ordinator for each event will take the lead and organise all the finer details ie helpers, timings, food, drinks etc. The co-ordinator will give a brief progress report at meetings, and finally complete a post-review after the event. These are filed for future reference.

If you would love to be involved (co-ordinator, idea generator, sponsor or just a show of support) with our Waiau Pa School PTA, let us know on our Facebook page or email

Warm regards,
Christine & Hope
