PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION
The Morrinsville College PTA is a dynamic and forward-thinking group that works hand in hand to support the College in providing quality education and being involved in our children’s schooling and education.
The PTA has two main functions. The first and most important function is to provide feedback to the school regarding parent and community views of the College. The second and equally important contribution of the PTA is fundraising.
Morrinsville College PTA host two major fundraising initiatives in the year. The Fun Run is a major highlight within the College and town and boasts significant sponsorships from local businesses and individuals. We are pleased that this event draws people from all over the country and is so well attended. Our other major contribution is the catering of the school Ball and this is always an enjoyable highlight for students, staff and families. The funds raised are typically used to provide extras that school funding doesn’t always stretch to and in the past we have contributed to buying the school mini van, shade sails, sports turf and security cameras.
Our meetings are always open and inclusive and we invite you to join us. It is usual for a member of the school’s Senior Leadership Team, the BOT Chairperson and Staff representative to be present at each of our meetings so that we work together as a team. Reports are presented and discussion takes place about different aspects of the school. There is always the opportunity for parents to ask questions and clarify issues that may be of interest or concern to them.
Being on the Morrinsville College PTA is a great way to be involved in your child’s education. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
18th Annual Morrinsville College Fun Run/Walk
An annual event organised by Morrinsville College PTA with assistance from our sponsors. This year is our 18th year and we are delighted to yet again be surrounded by such high quality businesses!
Based in the sunny Waikato, Morrinsville is a rural community consisting of approximately 6,500 people with Morrinsville College at the fore front of education for our younger citizens. As a community we want to support them as much as we can and the fun run enables the parents of the school to raise funds, helping with security systems, a new van, motivational speakers and any special resources.
It is always a fun day with a great atmosphere and so many spot prizes. Enjoy the event, visit our gallery or great cafes or take part of our Herd of Cows!
We are also proud alongside Te Ahurei Rangatahi to support the campaign
The Plan: Delay Teen Drinking aimed at helping improve youth drinking culture in Aotearoa New Zealand.
