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.
  • Parents and whānau can claim a 1/3 of the donation or partial donation as a tax credit at any time of the year, or for any of the previous 4 years (after 1 April 2016). SGHS IRD number is 049 634 455.
PTA Donation ($30)

Our Parent’s Association contributes much in the way of resources to the school each year.  In 2022, we were fortunate to receive over $20,000.00 from the PTA which included supporting the SGHS Breakfast Club.

The Parent’s Association is always looking for parents and whānau to join their group who give so generously of their time to the school. However, if you cannot donate your time, the donation of $30.00 is a wonderful alternative to support the PTA and the work they do.
