BIS Fundraising Team

Mamas Donuts Fundraiser

Thank you all for your support of our 1st school food fundraiser. The purpose of this was to raise funds to purchase and install a water bottle refill station in the school for our tamariki.

We were blown away with the number of families who purchased donuts which helped us achieve a total of $640. This has covered the costs to purchase the water refill station and upcoming school food sales will help us to fund the install. We got great feedback on this fundraiser and will look to run something similar again later this term. Thank you all so much.

Smarty Pants Quiz Night

Save the date – Saturday the 18th of September.

We wanted to create a fun event for you to enjoy a night out with friends/family and get the opportunity to meet the wider school community – as let's be honest most things are for the kids.

At the end of Term 3, we will be hosting an adults-only Smarty Pants Quiz night for parents to come to have some fun, enjoy some nibbles and drinks and compete to come out as the BIS Quiz Team champions.

Mark your calendars - more details to come.

School Camp (Y8) and Education outside the classroom (Y7)

In term four your kids will be provided opportunities to attend school camp if they are in year 8 or education outside the classroom for those in Year 7. These activities are not covered by government funding. To support our school families we will be launching a range of fundraising activities to help you reduce the costs for your OWN family or that you can donate to another. We have set up on Kindo an option to add money for fundraising, you can donate in $10, $20 or $50 amounts.

Kids lunch days

Each fortnight we will be running a lunchtime food fundraiser to help fund the long list of improvements we want to make to support our kids. We cannot do this alone and are looking for willing parents to donate a couple of hours of their time to help cook and sell food. These will be held on Thursdays each fortnight – the next one being the 19th of August. If you have time to spare and are happy to help, please join our Facebook Fundraising Page (below) or contact Abi Mace at amace@bis.school.nz.
