The Rongotai College Parents' Association is a voluntary group of interested parents who meet once a month to discuss and plan fundraising activities and events like the Ethnic Food Fair.
Over the past 20 years the Association has raised many thousands of dollars for projects that benefit the school and its students. These include providing lockers for the students to hire, outdoor education equipment, first aid courses for all prefects and a scholarship for a year 12 student. New chairs for the Renner Hall and display cabinets for the foyer have also been provided.
The Parents' Association is a valuable link between the College, the Board of Trustees and parents. The Association has a representative on the Board of Trustees, reporting on issues of interest to both groups.
New members and new ideas are always welcome. Meeting dates for 2016 are: Wednesday 16 March, Wednesday 13 April, Wednesday 18 May, Wednesday 15 June, Wednesday 10 August, Wednesday 14 September, Wednesday 19 October, and Wednesday 16 November.
The Quiz Evening will be held on Thursday 7 July at The Pines, Houghton Bay.
The Ethnic Food Fair, which is a highlight of the year for the school community, will be held on Friday 28 October.
