Your child benefits from the contributions of current parents and those of previous parents.  Each generation ‘Pays it Forward’ to support the high standard of teaching and facilities that benefit each student.
We invite you to join us in continuing to create a culture and a school where each student can thrive.

School Donation ($75)

Our parents can help provide a quality education for our students through giving a voluntary contribution. This donation is used to give your child an extensive  range of opportunities beyond what is funded by the Government. We know this makes a real and lasting difference to a student’s success. The donation goes toward funding the following items at SGHS:

  • Resources to support student’s learning such as technology equipment for specialist subjects like Robotics, Digital Technology, Music and the Performing Arts.
  • Subsidising school field trips within our wider community. These trips provide an important link between the classroom and learning in the real world. Students have the opportunity to explore future career pathways in a practical environment.
PTA Donation ($30)

Our Parent’s Association each year contribute much in the way of resources to the school each year. In 2021, we were fortunate to receive over $20,000.00 from the PTA which included the gifting of ten large TV’s to replace our aging Interactive Whiteboards.

The Parent’s Association is always looking for parents and whanau to join their group who give so generously of their time to the school. However, if you are unable to donate your time then the donation of $30.00 is a wonderful alternative to support the PTA and the work they do.
