The Baradene Parent Teacher Association is an active group of willing parents prepared to get stuck in. Its primary function is to promote community spirit among the school staff, Board of Trustees and parents – and have some fun along the way!
Equally important is its fundraising role. Each year Baradene parents fundraise to support a wide variety of projects for the school and in these challenging economic times, community support becomes even more important.
To achieve this we need you!
The PTA is a valuable link to your daughters’ school and will help you to forge relationships with other parents and teachers in the community. There’s the old saying ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ – join the Baradene PTA and make it part of your village.

FUNDRAISING PROJECTS FOR 2019/2020
The PTA host an annual Art Exhibition, which is our major fundraiser for the year and typically takes place in May. The 2019 Art Show raised $122,563, a new record!! It is a well known event on the Auckland calendar and an opportunity to purchase wonderful artwork from artists throughout New Zealand. The 2020 Art Show will be held 15 - 17 May.
The PTA also host an annual Father Daughter breakfast with an amazing guest speaker. This is a very popular event which helps build stronger family-school-community connections, inspire fathers and daughter alike and generates funds which are also used towards school projects.
We are always looking for new and interesting ideas to raise funds for the school. If you have any suggestions or ideas, please contact Chairperson, Derek Pereira on [email protected] or better still, come to one of our meetings! And, of course, we also rely on our tried and tested events.
