PSG is a group of enthusiastic parents who are involved in fundraising for Waipukurau School.

We meet once a month to discuss and organise fun and original ways to basically make money to help our children at our school. The money raised has been spent on sports equipment, softball gear, gymnastic mats, IT suite garden, and numerous other projects. By fundraising, this helps keep your expenses down. We also run sausage sizzles, help at sports events and run fun events to help raise money.

The more we help our school, the more our children will benefit. Our children spend 6 hours a day at school, so let’s make it the best place possible.

The “Parent Support Group” (PSG) is a group of parents and caregivers who assist the school in a wide variety of practical ways, and is similar to many other schools’ PTA.
