'Growing confident life long learners who strive to achieve their personal best.'



At Colyton School we value the input of our parents/whanau and community. If you feel that you have something to offer or can assist in some way, we welcome your contribution. At times teachers may require help in the classroom, providing transport, on a class trip, working in the library, or just supporting and showing an interest in your child’s learning.

Parent/caregiver help is always appreciated. If you are able to assist please contact one of the staff. Here are some of the ways parents may become involved: • Helping with reading particularly in the junior school. •

On the Board of Trustees or fundraising committee. • Organising and making resources • Going on school trips and camps • Working bees • Coaching sports teams • Helping with craft and cultural activities • With simple repairs to school property • Help in our vegetable garden.


A fundraising committee works actively each year on a variety of projects, with the support of, and in collaboration with the Board. The success of this committee is dependent upon the efforts and goodwill of our parent body.

Your support is welcomed, either by joining the committee for a period, or helping with the various projects. To find out more about this, please enquire at the school office.
