Parents' Association

A Great Opportunity to get involved in School Life

Parents’ Association (WEPA) meetings are a great way to get to know other parents and caregivers, keep in touch with what’s going on at school and support the whole school community - the students, teachers and events. 

We meet once a month, on a Thursday evening, See meeting times and dates below.

Our main role is to distribute money raised and donated by the school community to support the girls in their extra-curricular activities across sport, culture, arts and academic pursuits. We welcome all whanau to attend and contribute to the decision making to support the success of our girls.
