We thank you all for your incredible patience as you wait for your children’s uniform orders to be filled. We apologise for the the delay resulting from difficulties we are experiencing with our current supplier’s delivery times.
We understand this is a frustrating time and wish to reassure you that our main concern is the wellbeing of our students; please keep them warm and dry - even if this means they are wearing non-uniform items.
Please feel free to dress your child in their own jackets and track pants while you await filling of your order. If possible, please choose neutral items such as black, navy or green until they are able to wear their full uniform.
As items become available we will notify families via email if payment and collection are required. Items which are prepaid will be sent home with children.
A special thanks to the Chief’s and Calder & Lawson for their generous sponsorship of our Ultimate Chief’s Experience. Thank you to Aksel Bech for organising an incredible fundraiser and in such a short time raising just over a whopping $10,000 for our school!
Thank you also to our many families and friends and those further in the community who supported this event through the purchase of tickets - we appreciate you all!
As a Decile 10 school, our government funding is limited and so we operate on the following income strands:
Donations: The money from your School Donation is added into our school’s budget to support our learning programs. This money helps us to provide quality extras to enhance learning at our school, e.g. sports equipment, books, musical instruments, quality materials for art work etc. We are very grateful to the many families who have supported us through paying their school donation (please remember this is eligible for a tax rebate - receipts issued on request).
PTA Support: Our wonderful PTA support our school in so many ways, especially financially. They work tirelessly alongside the Board of Trustees to strive for common goals to improve all students education experience at Tamahere School.
Sponsorship: We appreciate all of our generous sponsors and thank them for their involvement and support of our school - we would not be able to offer nearly as much as we do without your help! The support of sponsors enables us to add significant funds to projects around the school. We encourage our families to give these businesses the opportunity to provide quotes and services as a show of support for their involvement with Tamahere School.
Thanks to our school sponsors for 2016. We are grateful for all your contributions.
Thank you to all of our families and wider community who have supported us through this wonderful fundraising opportunity.
