Looking for a way to help the school but can’t make it to any of our main events? Check out these….
Stuck On You – great for labelling things for school camps.
“Stuck On You” sells name labels – iron on/ shoe / stationary labels etc. They also sell personalised backpacks, drink bottles, jigsaws, wall art, lunch bags, towels and a whole lot more. 20% of sales will go to HNPS. (or 5% on promotional bits) There’s no mucking around with order forms – orders can be placed online. For HNPS to get the fundraising you must use the link StuckonYou Fundraising and at the checkout enter the code HNPS
All orders are shipped directly to your address.
In term 3 each year the Home and School organises the calendar art fundraiser with art that your child has created with the teacher within the classroom.
Each child then receives an order form which are individually named with a unique code which you enter once you are in the website.www.kidsartworks.com . At this point you will be viewing your child’s artwork. You can then order for yourself, grandparents, and for Christmas presents.
The artwork will be then sent to school in term 4 and your child will bring it home.
A great way to get some awesome personalised items and help the school at the same time.
We also need a couple of volunteers to advertise the event, collate the orders and hand out the items.
The Yummy Fruit Company stickers – Please keep collecting the Yummy Fruit stickers until the end of term 3.
Winter is a great time to be eating Yummy apples and pears, with many different varieties to choose from. The more stickers we collect, the more share of the $200,000 free DG Sport sports gear prize pool. Each year we get balls, cones, hoops etc for the classrooms boxes and the PE shed. Easy way to help the school and minimal effort!
Either cut-out labels from apple and pear bags (each cut-out label is worth 10 stickers) and/or collect the individual Yummy stickers on the fruit. If you want to stick your own sheet on the fridge – print out this, or just bring the stickers into the classroom. Thanks!
The Supper Club
The supper club has been running at HNPS for the past couple of years. We have a freezer in the hall with frozen meals and baking for the school to use at its discretion when a family within the school has a challenge like bereavement or sickness and could do with a care package.
We are calling for a list of volunteers who can be called on a couple times a year to contribute.
The families in need are normally nominated by someone, or the teachers and we then arrange to have the meals collected by the family or delivered to their home.
We wish to respect the privacy of families receiving meals and baking so we will be keeping this information confidential.
For those keen to support, Havelock North New World have provided silver trays and labels, you can collect these from the hall to put the food into. If you are not keen on cooking, a bought family pie and frozen vegetables are always welcome.
If you are able to assist in supporting The Supper Club, please email Sophie Sowman at email@example.com who will be in touch with more details. It’s an easy feel-good club we’d love you to put your hand up for.
Sushi and Pie days
During each term we have 2 or 3 Fridays when you can order sushi, a sausage roll or a pie for your child, as a fundraiser for the school. The days are advertised on the Home and School Facebook page (different to the school Facebook).
The team have worked hard to reduce the impact to the environment. So the sushi for example comes as a whole roll in a paper bag. No plastic in sight! A couple of people wander round with large glass bottles of soy sauce for those that would like it.
If you can help out for ¾ hour on a Friday lunchtime here and there, to hand out sushi orders, let us know.
The Board of Trustees are responsible for the Uniform but the Home and School Asoc provide volunteers to sell it. It raises money for the school and by selling second hand uniform on behalf of the parents (including HNI uniform).
If you can help out an hour a week – you are always on with an old hand, so training on the job – we would love you to get in touch. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Each year we have other events which are different every year or just one offs – such as having an ice rink to the school, family photo shoots, Picnic Cinema etc. If you have an idea or want to help out get in touch with the Home and School Association team via email email@example.com or enquire at the school office.
