Kaiapoi High School PTA – Connecting Parents, Teachers, Students and School Management
Welcome to the PTA web page.
The KHS PTA are an active group who are proud to be a part of the Kaiapoi High School Community. The PTA is all about fostering the link between the school and its community. It is an enthusiastic and caring space where parents and whanau can engage with the school in a meaningful way. Relationship building is one of the group’s key activities.
What do we do?
Over the last couple of years our focus has been on welcoming school families to school events. Most months all we ask is only 1 to 2 hours involvement from our members and, of course, to bring a sense of humour.
We are not a fundraising arm of the school! Our school does an excellent job of managing funds and fundraising without the PTA. However, we have been privileged through the support of local businesses to raise small amounts through social events, such as the School’s very popular Quiz Night, held at the end of August each year. This year we have contributed funds to purchase the Year 13 gifts and a donation to the Breakfast Club.
All members of the school community are welcome to attend and be involved in activities, initiatives and events. Please keep up to date by checking school newsletters and this website page: www.kaiapoi.school.nz/our-school/parent-teacher-association/
The PTA can be contacted via the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact us if you have any questions about your family starting at Kaiapoi High in 2019 and we will do our best to help or point you in the right direction.
We always appreciate your help and time! We look forward to having you involved in the PTA in 2019, and look forward to meeting you at the welcome evening for parents and caregivers, being held in February 2019.

Shop at Warehouse Stationery
Warehouse Stationery wishes to advise our school community that when shopping at Warehouse Stationery, if you mention Kaiapoi High School then 5% of your purchases will go back to our school. This is a great way to support our school.
We have a new site to enable you to buy and sell second-hand school uniform, all you need is an internet connection and you are away.
The service is free to use, and lets you list surplus uniform items so that other parents in our school can buy them. You can also donate the proceeds to the school if you wish.
To use this new system, go to: http://uniformme.co.nz
Register (all you need is an email address), start buying and selling uniform. You can post “wanted or buy” ads.
You negotiate directly with the seller – this is no ‘middleman’. There are no fees to pay (the school has subscribed).
