Motueka High School PTA “Friends of the School”

  • Our PTA is known as “Friends of the School”

    “Friends of the School” (FOTS) is an informal group of dedicated parents and staff who work behind the scenes to support the school in any way they can.

    Annually, the FOTS is involved in: Meet the teachers Year 9 BBQ; Talent Quest; School Ball; Open Night; Prize Giving; Parent Evenings; Cabaret; Baking and catering for fund-raising events

The FOTS meet to support and co-ordinate upcoming events and meetings take place at the Sprig & Fern in Motueka and are scheduled approximately two weeks before the next school event.  Meetings are generally held at 7pm and everyone is welcome.

N.B. Please email Robyn Ironside: brucei@xtra.co.nz for more information on joining or coming to the next meeting.

The FOTS, specifically Janice Aston, runs the Clothing Market for second-hand uniforms which is open each Wednesday at lunchtime.

There is also a large group of parents on our “Help List” who assist in various ways when called upon.  We are always keen for more helpers with everything from baking, catering, helping at schools events such as Cabaret and the School Ball, event security and as a classroom volunteer.
