Whakapau kaha – to be better than before.

Hi everyone,

Due to it being Craig Anderson’s last year at the school as a parent, we are seeking a new parent/parents to step up and help manage the school fair as convenor for 2019.

Craig has offered to mentor new parent/parents into taking this over and there is a wonderful committee to work with.

The fair is vital to funding all the amazing extra programmes that makes CPDS such a great school. The Fair’s been running for over 30 years and has contributed well over a million dollars towards extra facilities and education programmes at CPDS.

Craig has done a lot of work to streamline sponsorship and systems.  Over $10,000 of sponsorship is already confirmed. This is a wonderful starting point and opportunity for a new convener.

It is a very satisfying role working with all the amazing volunteers, staff and supporters, seeing it come to fruition. The kids’ thank you notes are famous.

The role works well for parents who work part-time or from home and have the flexibility around timetable, particularly in the month leading into the fair. Two parents could work together to share the role.

From a school perspective, we are going to work closely with management on ensuring the high level of their support in and around the role continues,

To express interest in this role, please email – we want to finalise this early in Term 4, to allow Craig and the new convenor to work closely on handover, and be ready for 2019 preparations.

Thanks in advance for your commitment to ensuring this hugely important part of our school community continues unimpeded.
