Message from PTA: Gala POSTPONED

Message from the PTA:

We have made the difficult decision to postpone the School Gala which was scheduled this Saturday to the new date of Saturday 1 April 2023.

We have been following the weather forecast constantly and its looking to be very wet and miserable this Saturday.

Thank you so much for everyone who has contributed to the Gala either with planning, support or donated items.

We will be storing all our wonderful sponsored/donated items safely and we of course welcome any further donations leading up to the Gala.

We are currently liaising with all our suppliers and sponsors and hope they can all make the new dates of 1 April 2023.

*We are very keen to get more volunteers to help with the food stands and rides at the Gala.   We are a very small (but passionate) PTA and really do need a lot more help and support in this area.  If you can help out on the 1 April 2023 please email

Lastly, a huge shout out to our 2 event sponsors who have been a constant support of the school and the PTA:

Susan and Brett Dyson – Bayleys real estate (ph 021 810 081)
Rovi Varma – LJ Hooker real estate (ph 021 245 4839)

Both are local real estate agents who specialise in Conifer Grove – but you probably know that given they are top sellers in our area!

We can’t thank you enough for your continued support.

Thank you again to our wonderful school community – we look forward to seeing you all at the Gala on 1st April 2023.

PTA Chair – Nicky Remkes
