Friends of Verran Primary

The Friends of Verran Primary School (FOVP) is a crucial part of our school. This is a group of dedicated and enthusiastic parents and whanau who 'support' the school by organising and running fundraising events throughout the year. Like many school support groups, its biggest focus is fundraising. We are actively involved in fundraising for the school which makes a valuable addition to the government funding we receive to operate Verran Primary School.

What we do......

The objective of our fundraising programme each year is to help raise funds needed to cover the shortfall between what our school receives from government funding and what is needed to operate our school. The funds raised go directly back into our school for our children.

When we fundraise, we raise money to carry out projects that benefit the school, pupils, parents and staff. We organise events like Discos, Movie nights, Quiz Nights, Chocolate sales, bake sales and fun runs just to name a few. The FOVP are not just a "fund" raising group, they also focus on running fun activities that make the experiences at Verran Primary so memorable for the children and their families.


Meetings are very informal and usually held twice a term, there are a number of ways you can help: Attend our monthly meetings - on a one-off or a regular basis, help to plan and organize fundraising and school events, supporting social/evening school functions or by lending a hand on upcoming FOVP events which are advertised in the school newsletter.

Past and present members of our FOVP will tell you that being involved in the FOVP is fantastic way to get involved in your child's school and it is a fun way to get to know other parents.
