Friends of Mahu is a group of parents that support our college, we feel proud of our college and know we play an important part in Our Place. We encompass the group of parents and caregivers that get involved in the many facets of school life and strive to help make a difference to the students at Mahurangi College. This includes coaching sports teams, helping on school trips and events, helping with school productions and stage challenge, fundraising, being a reader/writer etc.
A smaller group of parents and staff form the core of Friends of Mahu, and are responsible for some of the co-ordinating involved when undertaking events and fundraising. We try to have a fairly relaxed approach, with a broad focus and not too many formal meetings.
GETTING INVOLVED - AS MUCH OR AS LITTLE AS YOU'D LIKE
Becoming involved with Friends of Mahu is a great way to connect with and support the school community. We welcome all levels of involvement, attending meetings, helping with activities, signing on for our regular email updates, whatever suits you.

Providing baking (for a fundraiser or catered event)
Catering assistance (help prepare food and serve cups of tea at various events)
Event volunteer (assist with events such as parent information evenings)
Fundraising volunteer (assist with fundraising endeavors - currently we aim to have 1 fundraiser per year)
Committee member (Meetings are held approx twice a term - help decide where funds are spent and assist with organising events and/or fundraisers)
