"It takes a village to raise a child"
Glen Oroua Friends of the School (FOTS) is made up of a group of parents, caregivers and interested persons from the wider school community. All of these people have a shared interest in volunteering their time to the school, through fundraising and helping to run school events.
Glen Oroua Friends of the School aims to:
provide a link between the student/school, the home, parents and the community
bring parents and teachers together in school events
help raise funds, in order to provide improved facilities and opportunities for members of the school community
serve the school and community through social activities, encouraging unity and harmony
FOTS holds short constructive meetings 4 or 5 times a year. In 2021 their biggest fundraiser was the (usually annual) Trail Ride held at the end of Term 1 at Pukemarama Farm. The group welcomes and encourages full involvement from all school families.
