Friends of the School (FoTS)

 

TPS_Friendsoftheschool_Logo.jpg

The Friends of the School (FoTS) is a group of parents who are an integral part of the Tauranga Primary School community. The FoTS are responsible for fundraising and FUN-raising (such as the disco and family picnic) activities within our school community.

The FoTS meet at 7pm on Tuesday evenings in weeks 2 and 7 each term. At each meeting, current and future activities are planned and discussed.

A senior staff member, along with a representative from the Board of Trustees, bring a report to each meeting. This is an important opportunity for information sharing and for parents to ask questions about specific aspects of school life. The FoTS are keen to have as many parents involved as possible so that they can continue to build on the partnership between families and school.

Board of Trustees

 

Tauranga Primary School’s Board of Trustees is elected for a three year term. The BOT comprises of five parent representatives, the Principal, and a representative of the staff. Meetings are scheduled for the third and eighth Monday of each term, and they are held in the staff-room. Parents who wish to attend any of the meetings, are asked to inform the board chair or principal at least 24 hours beforehand so that we can prepare a welcome pack for you.
