Parent Information

Parents are able to get involved with the school and their child’s learning in a number of ways:

Absences
If your child is going to be away from school for any reason, you must ring the school absence line (338 8153, press 1)  before 9:00am or you can email absences@aidanfield.school.nz. Please leave your child's name, classroom and the reason for their absence (a reason is required by the Ministry of Education).

BOT  
Each school requires a Board of Trustees for the governance of the school.  We have Board elections every 18 months so if you feel this is something you would like to get involved in,  then consider being nominated.  Board meetings are held on a Monday evening about every 6 weeks (7 a year). Read more...

Classroom help  
Please ask your child’s teacher how you may be able to help in the class room.  

News  
Please click here for school news and newsletters. In addition to the newsletters there are separate pages linked to this page for specific news from the primary and middle schools.

PAACS (Parent Association)
This is the Parent Association for Aidanfield Christian School.  Throughout the year parents can involved with fundraising for the school.  This may be running a stall at the school fair, providing home baking, selling chocolates through Cadbury fundraisers and many other ways.  
You will have received a form inviting you to become a member of PAACS which will give you voting rights for the PAACS committee.  You may even consider joining the PAACS committee.

Prayer group  
We have a committed group of parents who meet regularly each week at school during school time to pray for the school.  Please speak to the office who will give you the contact number of the organiser of the prayer group.

School trips
Often teachers will ask for parental help on school trips.  You will normally be asked on the form which accompanies your child home when there is a school trip.

Sports coaching 
Kiri-Lee Williams, our sports co-ordinator, is always looking for willing parents who can help coach a sports team and accompany them to sports matches during the school day. 

Working in the school grounds
Each term there is a working bee to help keep our school looking tidy.  More information on working bees will be placed in the school’s newsletter.
