Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

About ENPS PTA

Contact the PTA: pta@enps.school.nz

The ENPS PTA is a group of parents and teachers who support the school primarily through fundraising activities. Each year in collaboration with the school leadership, we put together a calendar of events (which you can view on this website) that includes where possible social and educational activities for pupils. Traditionally each year we have run:

  • Refreshment stalls at the school picnic
  • After school Bake Sales
  • An educational ‘Athon (based on the term’s topic)
  • Mufti Days
  • Lunchtime Sausage Sizzles
  • An annual Disco
  • Calendar Art
  • Entertainment Books

We are very grateful to our wonderful school community which is very supportive. The money we raise is donated back to the school for the purchase of resources not covered by government funding, that the school deems a priority to support our children. In the past we have provided funds for items including:

  • Literacy resources (e.g. books, dictionaries, readers, resource books)
  • Maths resources
  • Science resources
  • DoT (Development of Talent) Day Resources
  • Garden party supplies
  • Robotics sets
  • Play equipment

All parents/caregivers and staff of ENPS are welcome to join the PTA, attend meetings, oversee a fundraising activity, or assist at an event. We also welcome “Friends of the PTA” who do not attend meetings but are happy to be called on when we need helpers at our events.

We are registered with the Charities Commission, which means we keep a set of accounts, hold an Annual General Meeting, and have three office bearers: Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer.

The PTA meets twice a term, once in the afternoon and once in the evening, for about one hour (meeting dates are posted on the school calendar on this website), all welcome. At our meetings we review past events and plan for upcoming events. School operational matters are not part of our meetings, please contact the school directly if you have any queries regarding the running of the school (e.g. curriculum/learning/homework, school policies and procedures, health & safety).

The PTA has its own email address, for all correspondence please contact us at: pta@enps.school.nz
