The Activity Fee is $50.00. The purpose of the activity fee is to offset costs not normally covered by the Ministry of Education or Board of Trustee grants. It helps to pay for recreational/cultural/extra-curricular activities that could otherwise not be offered and includes the Kahawrite magazine, visiting performers and programmes like Life Education. This is quite separate from any fundraising undertaken by either the P.T.A or B.O.T for special projects.
The Board of Trustees has set the school donation at $50.00 per term per child. Your voluntary donation provides extra computers, printers, software, library books, reading books, and other resources to benefit all pupils in the school. We appreciate payment of the annual donation to assist with the increasing costs of running the school.
Some families will have the capacity within their budgets to donate over and above the annual donation to enable the school to reach its financial targets and reduce the fundraising role of our PTA. We would appreciate any family who feels able to make a larger donation.
The donation will be tax deductible. The Board would be most grateful for all donations the school receives. All school donations are tax deductible and receipts will be issued.
These can be paid by cash or direct credit. The bank details are ASB 12-3155-0189083-00

If you would like to set up a direct debit or automatic payments for your payments, please contact the school office.
If you are sending money to school please make sure it is sealed in an envelope with your child’s name, room number, amount and what the payment is for written clearly on the envelope. This saves a lot of confusion. In general, we try to discourage children from having money at school.
