The GHS PTA is an amazing group of parents that help and support the school in many ways. A number of committee members are coming to the end of their involvement with the PTA with their children leaving GHS so we are now looking for motivated, energetic and supportive parents to come on board to ensure that we don't end up not having a PTA at this school. We have a great amount of fun helping with catering for school events, raising money for the extra activities and supplies for your children. We are very proud to have supported some big initiatives at school including the Library upgrade, upcoming Gym expansions, the upcoming Year 7 & 8 playground update and we also support the senior and junior Prize Giving's among many other projects over the years. We meet once a month in the school Library so we would love to get some friendly faces to join us in supporting your school.

The PTA are looking for parents for the committee but we are also looking for parents who can be on a phone list for when we need help during the school day with catering. Most of our members work during the school day and we need cover for those times. Please feel free to contact the school or Mrs Hornsby to show your interest and join us at our last meeting for the year on Wednesday 27th November.

We would like to invite anyone interested or wanting to find out more to our last meeting for the year for free dessert and refreshments at:

The Village Inn
Wednesday 27th November 2019
Starting at 7pm 

We look forward to seeing you there. If you would like further information please see Mrs Hornsby at school or contact the School Office for details.

We also remind you again about the fantastic fundraiser being run by the GHS PTA on behalf of the school. We, along with the amazing support of Hyundai Mid and South Canterbury, are able to offer you the chance to win a brand new Hyundai Kona valued at $31,490. There are only 1000 tickets available at $100 each so be quick to secure yours today - time is running out!  The draw will take place on Friday 6th December at the Geraldine Domain at the conclusion of the Santa Parade, approximately 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the School Office, Hammer Hardware, The Kitchen Cupboard, Geraldine Glass, Hyundai Mid & South Canterbury and local events. The money raised will help fund our student development programme promoting increased literacy and numeracy achievement for GHS students.
