Petone Central is a small decile 4 school in the heart of Petone. We are a diverse school with students from different ethnic and financial backgrounds. We are seeking funding to support the replacement of our school playground which is well over 30 years old and past its used by date.

Our playground is used not only by our students but also the community surrounding the area, including local churches, before school care, after school care, hall users, and local kids.

Our playground has had some parts removed for health and safety reasons and the rest has less than a years life left in it.

The ministry no longer funds school playgrounds therefore the school has to fund the full cost of the playground.

We have already fundraised towards a replacement and this will continue to be a huge fundraising effort during 2019.

We are aiming to fundraise $90,000 this year and appreciate any support given to our cause.

About us

Small but vibrant local school in Petone, very close to the heart of Petone. Decile 4, full primary, multi-cultural.

Use of funds

Funds raised with be used to replace our playground with a safer, more exciting, multi-age playground.

I so loved this school. I went there from 1975 to 1982 and had the privilege of being the Head Boy during its centenary year. My Dad also helped to build the playground we had at the junior school. Happy days. Craig
