School Support Group

Rakaia School Support Group

What we are…

We are a group of parents who meet regularly to discuss how we can help the school raise funds and what we can do to support children and staff at school.

Essentially the group is made up of any parent, caregiver, teacher, or interested adult who are able to give some time to help out when needed.

How can you join?

Any parents/guardians of children who go to Rakaia School are part of the group because we are raising funds to support our tamariki at school. To join the committee just come along to the meetings and let us know you want to be involved in the regular meetings

What we fundraise for…

Each year the School Support Group donates money to Ako, Whanau, Mahi Tahi, and the Library. This helps teachers with deciding on some extras that will benefit the students learning for the year.

Extras we do….

Treats for the students (and sometimes the staff!)

Donations towards the end of year activities for the students


Tea/Coffee and supper for the Arts expo


Grounds beautification (SSG have purchased outdoor tables, trampolines, shade sails, and the amazing fitness course on the field)

We also do request catering jobs as fundraisers. These happen sporadically during the year and we ask for food donations and your time. We can’t do this alone so please put your hand up whenever you can.
