PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION
The Morrinsville College PTA is a friendly and welcoming group of parents and staff who work together on fundraising for the school. In the past, our major highlight in the year was our Fun Run and this boasted significant sponsorship from our local businesses and individuals. As an event that drew people from across the country, we were proud that the event was always popular and well-attended.
Our PTA has also been involved in catering for the Student Ball; this is always an enjoyable night for all those who attend, and certainly a highlight for students.
After wide consultation and agreement with the parent and whānau community, the PTA has shifted its approach to fundraising, aiming for smaller events that can be more easily accomplished with the support from students and staff. We have agreed on one main event each term:
Term 1 - Market Day
Term 2 - Quiz Night
Term 3 - Parent Ball
We held a successful PTA Quiz Night last year however we were unable to hold any other event due to Covid. This year seems to be impacted in the same way with us unable to hold events because of restrictions and keeping everyone safe from Omicron and Delta.
