The Community Association is a body of parents and some teachers who seek to help support the school and Steiner Education.

It acts as a liaison between parents and the School Leadership Team & Board of Trustees. It actively assists the school with physical and educational supports.

The group organises fairs and other fundraising activities to help cover extra educational costs, not already covered by government funding or fees. It also assists in organizing some festivals and other social activities related to the school.

It can only run if parents are involved. All members of our school community are welcomed and encouraged to join the Community Association or attend monthly meetings.


Community Association meetings take place monthly.

Once Alert Levels allow, meetings will be scheduled for the remainder of the year and we will notify the community accordingly.

School Raffle 2022

Spring has arrived and it is time for the annual School Raffle, organized each year by Class 2. The annual raffle is solely to raise funds for our teacher aides. The role of the teacher aide is so valuable in our school – not only for our children on their learning journey but also for the teachers who gratefully receive their classroom support.

Raffle tickets are $2 each and there are over $6000 worth of prizes to be won (please check out the prize list on the tickets and a more detailed list on the school website).  The raffle will be drawn 3pm, Monday 14th November, 2022.

Whānau have been mailed 1x booklet of 10 raffle tickets to sell per enrolled child. Please sell to your friends, whānau, colleagues etc... There will also be prizes for the highest ticket sellers!  Due to legalities around the raffle process we ask you to please return all sold/unsold tickets and money to the office by Friday 21 October, 2022.

If you do not receive your tickets in the mail please let us know as soon as possible (emilycassels@gmail.com) and if you would like further raffle tickets to sell please enquire at the office or contact Emily.

We want to acknowledge and thank all whānau who take time to buy or sell their tickets. Your contribution is greatly appreciated by our school community.
