School Donations

As a decile 10 school, our operational funding from the Ministry of Education does not fully meet the costs of running our operations at the level you expect and which we wish to provide. Fundraising, including donations and grants, makes up the balance.

We rely on family contributions so that we can continue to meet and exceed your expectations about what we can deliver for all of our children.

In 2017 your family contribution will be used to:

  • Extend our reading and mathematics resources to support classroom teaching and learning.
  • Refreshing and modernising our teaching spaces
  • Enhanced Enviroschool and Education For Sustainability (EFS) opportunities
  • Resource our online learning environment to support home and school partnerships for learning.
  • Extend e-learning opportunities throughout the school.
  • Purchase resources and facilitate opportunities to meet individual needs.
  • Subsidise music instruments and equipment for projects such as a school band.
  • Increase resources for art and performance projects.
  • Subsidise special events such as sports, camps and other school trips.

We regard annual family contributions as the fairest and most feasible way to provide educational opportunities for all our children. Most parents and caregivers at the school, regardless of their ability to pay, share this view. 

There are several ways you can choose to contribute. The automatic payment option has proven to be very popular. Please support our school, it is appreciated.
