The S’Mart Community is a strong and passionate parent group supporting our school in a variety of ways; fundraising, giving practical support, the ongoing development of a strong parent community and all kinds of other fun stuff.
Joining us is easy as. In fact, if you already have a child going to St Martins School, you’re already ‘in’. Every parent of a child at our school is automatically considered a member of the Society unless you let the Managing Committee know otherwise. We do encourage you however, to stick around and participate as you see fit. If you want to go all out… sweet, but if you can only help out every now and then, that’s just as cool. You know what they say about many hands…
If you are full of wild ideas about what to raise funds for, what events to organise, etc. fire your suggestions through to and we’ll take your input on board.
The S’Mart Community is overseen by a Managing Committee and has dedicated teams to create fun and fabulous events like touch rugby, discos, a biennial Fiesta and community BBQ’s. On top of that we get the practical stuff done, such as working bees, projects around the school and applying for grants. Yup… we’re pretty busy!
With our hard-earned dollars, the S’Mart Community has supported the purchase of heat pumps for the school hall, new sports uniforms, 2016 set of World Book Encyclopedia for the Library, soccer nets, technology for the library, classroom furnishings (button cushions, lap trays), art aprons, kapa haka accessories, year 8 yearbooks, electric piano, electric drums, data projectors, iPads, sunshades (with support from pub charity) , library shelving, basketball hoops (in conjunction with student council), school hall boiler, refurbishing of the school hall, and provided support for garden to table, Jubilee Trust and performing arts as well as providing contributions to school syndicates in recent years.
This year our major focus is raising funds to support the redevelopment of the school hall.
The S’Mart Community is an Incorporated Society so it benefits from being a charitable entity. If you’re keen to know more details email: , or talk to one of the managing committee members.
See you soon!
