The PTA meet twice a term, usually the 2nd and 8th Monday of each term, for one hour. Everyone is encouraged to attend meetings and we welcome new members with open arms, so feel free to come along! We are a group of enthusiastic parents who are keen to help the school raise much needed funds, and to help build a community feeling with regular, fun events for our families. 

Please like us on Facebook in order to keep up to date with the PTA, we also let you know what's happening through the newsletter and on the blackboard by the main gate.

PTA BACK TO SCHOOL BBQ 2019

PTA BACK-TO-SCHOOL BBQ! 2019

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

On Thursday 21 February we will be holding our annual Back-to-School BBQ at school. This is a non-profit event and we hope you can all make it, especially those families new to our school. The PTA will provide burgers and buns free of charge, and we ask that each family contributes some food as outlined below. It is a fun evening for our community, so please come along. Everyone is welcome, including grandparents!

Time: 5.30pm – 7.30pm

Venue: Middle playground

What shall I bring?

If your surname begins with A, B or C: a slice or a brownie on a disposable plate – we are going for finger food dessert!

If your surname begins with letters D – L: a disposable plate of burger ingredients, e.g sliced tomatoes, torn lettuce, sliced gherkins, sliced cheese. Choose one or more, it’s up to you.

If your surname begins with M – Z: your favourite salad to add to our sumptuous salad buffet, on a disposable plate.

BYO plates and cutlery for your family. Also bring festival chairs or cushions and a blanket to sit on. This is an ALCOHOL FREE EVENT in line with School policy. There will be drinks and treats available for the children to purchase with their pocket money.

How can I help?

Glad you asked! We need our usual group of fabulous, enthusiastic helpers to cook and serve burgers, salads and desserts. In addition, we’re asking for people to supervise children on the bottom fields, in groups of three or four throughout the night. We will be asking friends of the PTA for assistance – we literally cannot do this without your support. If you can help please get in touch with Helena Kerr (021 206 3644) and you’ll be rostered onto a job. Grab a friend or two and volunteer! Obviously the more people who offer to help, the shorter all our shifts will be, so please consider giving us a hand.

SUPERVISION OF CHILDREN: Although the children are at school, any NCS staff are strictly OFF DUTY so your child’s safety and behavior is YOUR responsibility. Please do your bit so we can all have a relaxed and enjoyable evening.

Please return this form to your child’s teacher by Friday 15 February so we know how many burgers to buy. Thank you all for your support and see you on Thursday 21 February!
