Whanau and Friends of CQS

Previously the Whanau and Friends were known as the PTA.  As the role evolved a new name to best reflect the group was established in 2020.

The 'CQS PTA' was established mid 2013 with the purpose of being a liaison between school parents, teachers and the Board of Trustees. A major function of the Whanau and Friends is fundraising to cover the shortfall between school income (voluntary donations and government funding) and expenditure for the services the school provides.  The deficit differs from year to year but it is often in the vicinity of $45k pa.  The BOT recently increased voluntary donations and it is likely they may increase again in the following years. However we are sill left with a significant shortfall.

The Whanau and Friends of Clyde Quay School is a parent driven organisation working to benefit all of our children. We are a group of energetic parents excited to be part this important group. Please consider joining the Whanau and Friends as we would love your input in continuing to make the school a great place for our kids to learn.  Meeting dates will be posted in the school newsletter and on this page. No previous experience is required! 

If you are interested in finding out more please see Helen at the office, or contact any of the current Whanau and Friends members.

New World Wellington City School Sponsorship
This is a very, very easy way for all Clyde Quay families to fundraise money for the school and all you have to do is shop at Wellington City New World.

Have your docket stamped at the time of purchase by a Checkout Supervisor and deposit your docket in the Clyde Quay School drop box provided in the main entrance of New World. (Duplicate receipts can be requested, at time of purchase, if the original is required).

Every time you purchase products from New World Wellington City, they will pay the school 1.5% pa of the total $ sales value.

So get shopping and support this great fundraiser and drop those dockets into the box provided. Every bit helps the school. Sponsorship will be paid at the end of each School term.
