Fundraising & Community Activities
To bring balance in our busy lives we approach fundraising with an emphasis on great outcomes for our children, family fun and spreading activities across the year.
Fundraising at Maungawhau is a great way for the parent community to come together to raise additional funds which directly benefit our children – from playgrounds to Tuanui – fundraising makes a world of difference to our students’ school life.
As Maungawhau School is a decile 10 school, we rely on fundraising led by our parent community to raise money to pay for additional products and services that enhance the learning experiences and school environment such as technology in the classrooms, new classroom furniture and more.
Our fundraising efforts go into improving the school for all our students. Our latest big project was renovating Tuanui, our covered and turfed outdoor learning and play space. To be able to fund amazing opportunities for our children like this we need to host regular fundraising events which will allow us to continually improve our school facilities for our whole community.
We regularly host…
- Sausage sizzles, ice block sales, discos (year round)
- Education Challenge Fundraiser which students complete (“athon”, once per year)
- A Parent Quiz Night (Term 3)
- Our iconic School Fair (Term 4)
Parents are welcome to suggest and run their own fundraisers. If you have an idea or would like to join in an existing fundraising activity please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
And if the idea of working on a large project isn’t your thig we have plenty of fun, smaller tasks that we would greatly appreciate your help. Please contact us with your interest.
Thank you in advance for supporting your school community.
