All families are welcome to join FoNS
To contact us, please email

FoNS is a small group of parents who organise, or help to organise the school's fundraising and family-focused, social events for the school community.  If you have a bright idea to put the FUN into fundraising we would love to hear about it.

We meet just once or twice a term.  
Meetings are usually Monday evenings at 7:30pm . The next date is to be advised.  All parents/carers welcome.  We would love new people to join us this year as some of the more established FoNS members have children leaving the school, so need to take a step back.

Here are the FoNS events
and activ
ities planned for 2017:


  • Monday 13th March (week beginning) - Easter Raffle Tickets coming home
  • Friday 17th March from 5pm - Family Social - Fish N Chips night
  • Friday 31st March - Easter Raffle Drawn
  • Friday 23rd June from 5:45pm - Kids' Movie Night
  • Friday 11th August evening - Kids' Disco(s)
  • Friday 8th September from 5:45pm - Kids' Movie Night
  • Friday 8th December from 5pm - annual Knees Up
Thank you for your support in promoting, attending and/or helping out with these activities and events.

We accept gratefully whatever help you can offer - whether it is for one event or activity or several.  You do not necessarily have to make the meetings, but if you can put your names forward as people who would be happy to help with a couple of the advertised events or activities, that would be fantastic e.g. selling drinks at events, stoking up the BBQ, helping out at book stalls, baking cakes for parent teas, loading up some disco music, shepherding children at events.... etc.. 
The more help we receive the more we can achieve.

If you ever need to pay FoNS for events or activities, or would like to make a donation to FoNS, please do an online banking transfer to BNZ 020528-0057080-00 with your child's full name, classroom number and the reference as to what activity or event it was for, or "donation".  Thank you.
