Gladstone Community Group
The Gladstone Community PTA helps coordinate FUN and FUND-raising events to support the whole of the community associated with Gladstone Primary School. All of our children enjoy the benefits of these activities – which in recent years have included covered classroom deck areas, playground facilities, tiger turf, kapa haka & pacific uniforms, sporting equipment and educational resources.
Many hands make light work and if all of our 600 families helped in one way over the time their children are here, we would never run out of volunteers. There are tonnes of ways you can get involved with the Gladstone Community. Whether it’s a couple of hours manning a sausage sizzle, helping with an IT issue, or supporting one of our fundraising or community-based activities, we have somewhere for you to help.
In 2019 we need volunteers to help with:
-Grill ‘n’ Chill – Friday 8th March
-Beats & Bingo – Friday 21st June (for the parents)
-Calendar Art – late T3 and early T4
-Halloween Disco – Friday 1st November (for the children)
-Art Night – Thursday 12th December
Whether you can help a little or a lot, we’d love to connect with you!
You can e-mail us (below) or join us at one of our meetings. Everyone is welcome.

Will there be a Gladstone Gala in 2020? It’s up to you…
Gladstone Primary is planning an upgrade of the existing hall facility and the Gladstone Community PTA have the opportunity to contribute to those ‘bells and whistles’ that would make this space really work for our children and the wider school community.
One of our most successful fundraising ventures is the school gala, however this has been replaced with the Chill ‘n’ Grill in the past two years due to the amount of work required – and not enough bodies.
We would love to hear from you if you’re keen to see the Gala reinstated in 2020 – and can contribute some time and enthusiasm to make this happen. The main areas of contribution are likely to include:
-Games & entertainment
-White elephant – or some variation on this
-Set up and support
