In 2019, the Government offered schools free fees for children and the Board of Trustees accepted the offer. We will no longer request Parent Donations or RE Resource costs. Additionally, parents will no longer be asked for payment towards school trips and some shows. If you would like to know more about the scheme please follow this link: http://www.education.govt.nz/our-work/information-releases/issue-specific- releases/schooldonations/
Do we have your current contact details? Last year, we minimized the time spent phoning parents in the event that their child had not arrived at school. Should this be the case you will receive a text or occasionally a phone call. In the event of an emergency at school or if a school-wide communication is required then a text will be sent to all parents alerting them of the issue. Your current details are necessary for this system to be effective. Please contact us if your home/work situations have/will change.
The P.T.F.A have allocated funding to the Board of Trustees to help pay for various capital items, E.O.T.C and school shows. This donation has been possible due to fundraising efforts such as raffles and the School Gala. We thank you and the P.T.F.A for assisting us to raise this money so we can now pass some of the benefit on to you. Membership is open and you are very welcome to join the P.T.F.A.
On a more personal note, please contact the school office if you have any problems with these charges. Your enquiry will be treated with utmost CONFIDENCE. There is assistance available for preference families who may have difficulty paying Attendance Dues. Please contact the Principal, the Office Manager, Deborah Rudolph or our Parish Priest if you need any information about this support.
If, you are interested in sponsoring or supporting one of our families with the payment of Attendance Dues or school donations please contact Mr. McKernan or Mrs. Rudolph.
