The Maungatapu School and Community Fundraising Committee, known as M*A*S*H* (Maungatapu Army of School Helpers), is a pivotal part of our school community and is responsible for significant fundraising within our school.

The Fundraising Committee is comprised of a group of parents and caregivers. Parents can also support the Fundraising Committee without formal committee membership.

Meetings are held monthly in the school staffroom. Whether you are interested in coming along to listen and learn or are ready and able to get actively involved, you are welcome to any meeting. We love new ideas and new people! Come along and find out more about what happens at school.

Our purpose

  • Fostering goodwill through organising social events that bring school and community together and encourage unity and harmony
  • Developing a positive relationship between home and school environments
  • Liaison with Board of Trustees and supporting the school’s Vision and Strategy
  • Fundraising for school purchases in line with current budget approvals and the long term Strategic Plan

Some regular fundraisers that we organise include the School Discos, Sausage Sizzles, Mufti Days, Book Fair, Ice Block Days, Leavers Yearbook and the School Fun Run. For further information about our M*A*S*H* Committee, please contact us by emailing mash@maungatapu.school.nz
