Helping Our School (FOTS)

Helping Our School: Friends of the School 

Friends of Holy Family Catholic School Wanaka Inc. (or FOTS for short) is a registered charity whose primary objective is raise funds for the benefit of the students of our school.

As a decile 10z school, the operational funding received from the Ministry of Education is not sufficient to meet the school's resourcing needs accordingly, funds must be raised from elsewhere and this is how FOTS fits in.

Run by members of our school community, our meetings are informal and a great way to meet other people. We hold them every month to 6 weeks, the date for which appears in the school newsletter and on the school’s Facebook page. 

If you are unable to attend meetings but have ideas for fundraising or school social events, please email

Alternatively, if you would like to make a donation to our school directly, please feel free to contact our principal on 03 443 2394 or email You may be able to claim tax credits for your donation. Please click here for further information.
