Dear Parents/Caregivers,
We are excited to reveal the details of our newest fundraising initiative to you. We are one of the first schools in the country to be using this new concept. Close to 10,000 unique, high quality products will be available for purchase and the best part is Upper Moutere School gets 50% of the profits.  With Christmas around the corner, it would be great if you could choose to support the school by doing some of your Christmas shopping online via the website.

Each year a massive effort is required by staff, SUMS, local businesses and countless parents to raise the funds necessary to allow us to offer our pupils the education we want for them.  Nearly all money raised comes from just a few events in the year, which can make us vulnerable to things such as bad weather. This year, of course, has been exceptionally tough.

This new option will alleviate some of that pressure by creating an ongoing revenue stream for the school throughout the year. With your support, we believe this could be a significant contributor of much needed funds for Upper Moutere School. Introducing…

SchoolPickUp is an online store, selling a very wide range (currently 10,000 items and growing) of high-quality products. Not only does it have one of the best selections of products you will find online but, most importantly, 50% of the profits go straight to Upper Moutere School.

The items available have been carefully chosen regarding the environment – respect it and look after it. As a result, where possible, sustainably produced, biodegradable, eco-friendly or NZ made products have been sourced. If that was not possible, other high-quality products have been selected, so you should only ever have to buy it once.

Whether you are looking for a gift, an item for the home or kitchen or the very best lunchbox you can buy, SchoolPickUp has it all. The prices are no more expensive than other stores, plus there will be regular specials.

Have a look and let us know what you think!

Thanks for your support.
