Attend Seminars and Conferences…

We offer seminars on the roles of secretary, treasurer and chairperson, and offer information to parent groups and schools. We are also available to speak at meetings,  to offer advice and steer people in the right direction for help. Meet up with like minded PTA member’s at our annual conference, to learn the “how to” of fun raising and what information is current in the education sector of NZ.

NZPTA works with the Ministry of Education…

NZPTA also works closely with the Ministry of Education and other national education organisations so it is important that we are able to take parents’ views to these groups.

NZPTA is run by ordinary PTA people like yourselves who also see the wider perspective of educational issues in this country. It is a ‘grass roots’ organisation which has as its policy those things which the local PTA people bring to their notice. All members of the NZPTA executive team are volunteers, and are open to communication with you.

We encourage you to join us and welcome you wholeheartedly – invite us to your meeting or come along to our next conference or seminar.
