We are a dedicated group of parents, running the fundraising team at our gorgeous rural primary school.
With a small school like ours, fundraising plays an important role, not only financially, but also socially, as it builds connections and friendships in our school family community. If you’re new to Nelson North, this is great way to make new friends and get to know an awesome bunch of people!
FoTHS has been a part of Hira School for many years and has come up with creative and financially worthwhile fundraisers, from producing the ever-popular Hira School Cookbook to running the major Nelson event, ‘Valley to View’. We also work alongside the Hira Rural Fire Force fundraiser, the Pepin Island ‘Walk, Bike, Run’. These latter two events showcase our stunning local area to the wider region. We are lucky our school is located in beautiful North Nelson.
We’re proud to support many school activities, from school camps to purchasing educational materials including books, computers and i-pads. We also fund specialist teachers and have provided the school with its own greenhouse and gardening equipment – there is always something new and exciting on the agenda to work towards.
Our major fundraiser of the year is the amazing ‘Valley to View’ – Mountain Bike or Hike. This is an “all hands on deck” event, and gives Nelson families the chance to explore spectacular private property, normally off limits to the public. More information can be found on our Event News page.
We always welcome new members, and look forward to new families joining us with fresh fundraising ideas and plenty of energy!
