A strong parent community to support the school in providing a healthy positive environment and greater learning opportunities.

Incorporated Society #220377

The S’Mart Community is the St Martins School parent community that helps the school by fundraising, giving practical support and by helping develop a stronger parent community. (This has replaced the previous PTA and Fundraising groups). For more details go to our website www.smartcommunity.org.nz

It is assumed that every parent of current St Martins School children wants to be a member of the Society unless they let the Committee know otherwise via info@smartcommunity.org.nz   Parents are encouraged to participate as they are able to.

The S’Mart Community is an Incorporated Society so that it benefits from being a charitable entity.


Respond to the requests for help that are communicated through the school newsletter and emails.

Join the MEALS or BAKING email databases.

We have a MEALS database of people willing to be asked to make a meal when a family is in need. We also have a database of people willing to be asked to make BAKING for events. For both of these, you are able to decide at the time if you are able to help.

Join one of the Teams.

Each team needs members to help fulfill the role of that team. You can see the ROLE DESCRIPTIONS of the teams. The team leaders meet with their teams as needed.

  • The Community Team needs at least one parent per class to help promote the S’Mart Community, help liaise with parents, listen out for families needing support and help create fun!
  • The Fundraising Team needs lots of parents keen to help with fundraising.
  • The Practical Jobs Team need people who are keen to lend a hand with running events, or is otherwise practically inclined (e.g. can sew, bake, turn a spade!)
