Since 2017, Sunnybrae Normal has been running a Parent Cafe on Wednesday afternoons from 2.30-3.00 PM. The purpose is to bring our parent and whanau community together in a friendly, informal environment. It is a way that the community can connect with each other as well as strengthen their ties with our school by having a place to belong. The cafe pops up each Wednesday in our school library and refreshments are provided. A staff member is always present to respond to particular questions and a parent library is available. The setting up of the environment is the responsibility of our teacher aides, Jocelyn Ley and Winnie Ngata, who are able to converse at the cafe in Mandarin and Tongan.
