We are a group of parents who co-ordinate and facilitate a host of fund-raising initiatives in order to provide additional financial support for South Mākirikiri School.
Some examples of how the money raised by FOS has benefited South Mākirikiri School over recent years include:
- Work tools for Rooms 1 and 2
- Junior reading books to support the phonics programme
- Jump Jam DVD’s
- School camps
- Swimming lessons
- Transportation to/from the pool
- New sports uniforms – which will be rolled out next year
- Over $20,000 to date, donated to the fitness track
Every child at South Mākirikiri benefits from the money that is raised by the Friends of School Team as they journey through the school.
We also provide a pastoral care role when people in our school community are in need a bit of extra help.
There are times when we need extra help for particular events, that’s where you can help. Whether it be manning a BBQ, helping organise an event, baking or other tasks when and where required. If we all do a little, we achieve a lot.
