The Waerenga School PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a voluntary group of parents, plus staff and BOT representatives.
Our aims are:
- To enable a social link between the parents / caregivers and the school
- To support the school through fundraising to improve facilities and learning opportunities
- To support the school in providing for the students educational, social, cultural and sporting activities
The PTA welcomes new and enthusiastic members. Come along to a meeting and find out how you can get involved. Not only will you be helping out your school, being a part of the PTA is a wonderful way to get to know the families within your community.
Our meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, at 7.30pm in the school staffroom. We also encourage you to join our Facebook page, ‘Waerenga School PTA’ for regular updates on PTA activities.

The PTA offers school lunches every Friday (unless notified).
The lunch order is selected by writing the number of items on the order form against the item required, then placing the form, with money in a ziplock bag (correct change wherever possible is appreciated).
The order forms can be printed (as below) and then cut to single order forms, or they can be picked up with ziplock bags from the school office. The form and money in the ziplock bag is then placed in the marked box in the foyer of the school office before 9am on the Friday. Any change and replacement forms when requested are sent home with your child in the ziplock bag. All proceeds from school lunches go to the PTA.
Waerenga School PTA regularly holds fundraising and social events throughout the year, details of which can be found on this page.
Ice Skate Tour
On Monday 3rd April and Tuesday 4th April, the Ice Skate Tour is coming to the Waerenga Hall! As you all know the Trail Ride was cancelled this year due to weather, this event is one of our biggest fundraisers. The money we make goes back into the school and helps pays for camps, equipment and so much more! We are now pushing for the Ice Skate Tour to be a big event and need your help as parents to make this happen! Come along and find out how you can help us!
Please download the Volunteer form and return to the school office.
9-3-17 CANCELLED – UNFORTUNATELY THE TRAIL RIDE FOR 2017 HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO BAD WEATHER.
