Friends of Edendale

The Friends of Edendale are an enthusiastic bunch of mums, dads, caregivers and whānau whose overall goal is to support the school through fundraising for those extraordinary resources that the students and school may not otherwise be able to enjoy. 

As members of Friends of Edendale, we get great satisfaction from contributing towards a strong school community.


Many hands make light work, it’s fun to get involved, and here are some ways you can help:

  • Attend our monthly meeting to get insight to all behind the scene action. Meetings are held every third Thursday during term time on Zoom or at school when possible.

  • Volunteer for various events that we organise throughout the year – Bake Sales, Disco Nights, Picnics, Colour Runs, and other exciting events.

  • Donate a service or product from your business/organisation – we are always looking for products/services to include in our raffles, giveaway hampers, goodie bags, auctions. So if you have something to donate, please email us.

  • Support our events by bringing the whole whānau and buying tickets, yummy food, snacks and have fun with other parents and children.

  • Offer your expertise and suggestions on different ways we can operate and fundraise for the school.

Getting involved with the Friends of Edendale can be as active as you choose, and it’s a great way to make connections with your school community. We encourage you to attend a meeting and see what it’s all about!  If you have any questions please email us at
