School Donations: Parents and caregivers invest in their daughter’s future by way of a donation to the College. The money received from donations enables us to provide equipment and resources which are not covered by state funding, but which we believe are vital to providing the level of education expected of us. In 2013 the donation is $275 per student.
Technology Donation: All families are asked to contribute towards the ongoing cost of providing state of the art technology facilities for students. In 2013 the donation is $185 per student.
Development Fund donation: The Development fund, managed by the Board of Trustees, invites contributions towards its projects which include captial projects that are not provided for by the Ministry of Education. In 2011 the Foundation contributed $1.2m towards the new Pipitea building (which was the predecessor of the Development Fund). The Development Fund is aiming to contribute funds towards the creation of an artificial turf, and the 'commons project' which will provide a new canteen and commons area near the field. It is also likely fundraising will take place to help the school re-develop the Performing Arts area of the campus. In 2013 the donation is $170 per family.
Donations to the College are tax deductable.
Please note school donations will be reassessed each year and changes may occur.
