Schools run on goodwill

All schools in New Zealand ask for annual donations to supplement the funding provided by the Ministry of Education. While these payments are a donation, they can potentially make a huge difference to our school. 
Because our school is rated as a decile 9, this means we receive almost the least amount of funding that a school can receive. In the past couple of years, the Board of Trustees have not raised the donation amount we ask from each family. 

Last year the percentage of donations our school received was 40% of what we could potentially receive and so I am keen to see if we can lift this in order to give us more funds to support learning. Please consider making your school donation via automatic payment to our bank account as follows:
