Development

Introduction

The school identified a specific need for an administrator who could assist with applying for external grants for school resources and equipment.  In 2010, a part time development administrator was employed.  This role compliments PTA fundraising activities. Over the years, the role has expanded to include developing new marketing material ie. the school prospectus and being the dedicated resource for maintaining the school website.  This has enhanced our service and communication to parents and the local community.  The role also includes the production of the newsletter, sourcing newsletter sponsors,  the back up for library and administration staff, and the coordinator for ASB school banking, Yummy Apples and Meadow Fresh promotions, BNZ Closed for Good, Fields of Dreams School Swimming at Lloyd Elsmore and SunSmart Schools.
