We are the NZPTA
Individual parent groups such as PTA’s, Home and School, Friends and Whanau and Pasifika belong to NZPTA. We are a grass-roots organization that has been around for over 60 years, and are keen to provide meaningful support and information to school communities for helping children to thrive.
NZPTA is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization dependent on the good will of hard-working parents and families to fill the Executive positions. Funding for the life and future of this organization is by means of annual membership subscription, grants, advertising and sponsorship.
We have a freecall number for contact, support and help: 0800 334 403
