Home and School

The Home and School at Barton Rural is about bringing the Home and the School together. 
As with any Home and School we organise fundraising to support our children by raising money for the things at school that are the icing on the cake. Things that the Ministry of Education doesn’t fund school for. 
We have a hard working group of busy parents who are energetic, and motivated with lots of different ideas for raising funds.
