Paremata School

Parents/caregivers - there are many ways you can help

Contact us now if you would like to be any kind of helper for a stall.  If you can provide help on the day (shifts are only 2 1/2 hours long) or have any questions please contact Jo.G as part of the gala committee on paremataschoolpta@gmail.com for more details. You can also leave a message at the school office, and we'll contact you. Ideally we need a total of 130-140 people to run a complete day's gala.  See available positions here: http://www.paremata.school.nz/3631/forms/6-helper-spots-available/

each stall.
