Villa Merry Christmas Fete 2022 

The Villa PTA is planning to hold the Villa Merry Christmas Fete on Sunday 27 November 2022, following the enormous success of the event in 2019.

The PTA is now seeking enthusiastic volunteers from our school community to be part of this exciting event and help make the 2022 event the best yet. 

STALLHOLDERS: if you’d like to have a stall at this year’s Fete, please email christmasfete@villa.school.nz

Dear Parents and Friends of Villa Maria College,

Come along and support your daughters and the College! Keep an eye out on the Villa Connect newsletter or the Villa Maria College PTA Facebook page for meeting notices. We would love to see some new faces, with new ideas and enthusiasm. Mums, Dads and guardians very welcome. We need representatives from all year levels but particularly the Intermediate school, and Year 9 -11 parents. You can be as involved as you wish to be, or just attend meetings and offer ideas, it’s completely over to you.

Being on the PTA gives you the opportunity to:

  • Meet other parents
  • Be involved in providing pastoral care to families at school that may be going through difficult times
  • Provide feedback to the school in an informal setting
  • Be involved/consulted in decision-making around extra amenities that the school may need
  • Organise education/information evenings for parents
  • Help College staff with hospitality at school events
  • Be involved with fundraising activities, and helping decide where that money is best spent.

Over the last two years our activities have been curtailed significantly by Covid disruptions, however we were able to hold a very successful Fashion evening last year which was a great social event as well as raising funds for the purchase of new sunshades at the College.

We were also able to assist several families through our Pastoral Care Fund, and with practical support such as Meal Trains etc.
Hopefully this year will allow us to hold more events without the threat of lockdowns. Come and join this enthusiastic and welcoming group of parents, we would love to meet you!

ABOUT OUR PTA

 

Oprah Winfrey says: “The essential question is not, “How busy are you?” but “What are you busy at?”  And that pretty much sums up the friendly band of parents who work behind the scenes to support Villa Maria College.

 

Building the Villa community – Our aim is to build a community feeling among parents by organising opportunities for us to get together.  It’s often hard to feel connected to your child’s school once they hit these teenage years.  We’d love to break down those barriers and create a community of committed Villa parents.

 

Fundraising – We don’t set ridiculous targets and we’re always seeking ways to fundraise smarter not harder – we know how busy every parent is!  We fundraise for specific things that will directly impact the girls’ educational experiences.

Funding Success

The PTA has helped Villa pay for:

  • Five sunscreen dispensers located around the College for students to use
  • House Flags for the whole school to utilise at various events
  • The school swimming pool upgrade – a much-loved part of the College
  • Curtains for the Hall
  • Year 8 Graduation party
  • Year 13 Common Room gear
  • Centenary History Book project
  • Last Hurrah student event to celebrate end of year
  • Contribution to student welfare needs
