    • About Us

      The Christchurch Girls' High School PTA would like to extend a very warm welcome to the school community.

      The PTA is active in providing a link between staff, parents and the Board of Trustees.

      While the bulk of our funds are received from your PTA donation we do organize fundraising events throughout the school year. All funds received are used to support your daughter’s school activities inside and outside the classroom. In the past funds have been used for projects like the Lunchroom upgrade, providing outdoor seating and travel subsidies for teams and groups representing their school.  In addition the PTA runs the popular second-hand uniform sales.

      The PTA meets monthly and it is a great time to meet other parents and get to know them.

      We invite you to join us at our meetings and you can be assured of a very warm welcome.

      Clair Norris PTA President,

      • Fundraising

        The PTA runs two types of activities; community activities and fundraising activities.

        Community activities primary purpose is to support the school community. PTA funds and volunteers’ time are used to run or reduce costs to individuals; e.g. Year 9 Parents Evening, Study Skill Sessions, Teacher/Parent Interviews, Dads & Daughters Breakfast.

        Fundraising activities enable the PTA to make a profit which is then used later, either to support a community activity or purchase supplies for the school; e.g. Computers and heat pumps.Activities include social events, selling products and second-hand uniforms.
