Totara Courtyard


There's still time to sponsor a beautiful native bird sculpture for the school's redesigned Totara Courtyard. Each bird costs $50 and is crafted from quality corten steel. Your child’s name or family name can be engraved at the base of the bird as a lasting reminder of your time at Pukekohe East School. Picture your grown-up kids visiting their bird long after they have flown the nest. By sponsoring a bird you’ll be helping the school to fund its courtyard makeover. Order your bird at the Information Kiosk on Pet Day. 

Ski Camp 2015

Wow what an amazing time at Turoa Skifield! We experienced stunning weather and the children embraced our school values and mastered skiing. Many thanks to the parents who accompanied us. They were exceptional.

Congratulations to senior students

A well organised cake stall with lots of contributions from senior students meant that $306 was raised by the children for the Totara Courtyard.

Thank you to parents and children who supported the success by purchasing goodies for morning tea.



Steptember - Fundraising for Cerebral Palsy Society

We have a student who is a representative for this fundraiser.
