School Fees 2020

School Donation

Our parents help provide quality education for our students by giving a voluntary contribution.  The donation is used to give your daughter a full range of opportunities beyond what is funded by the Government.  We know this makes a real difference to her success.  The donation of $100 is a very small amount considering the important items it helps to fund.

  • Employing additional teachers so we can offer a wide range of subject choices and smaller classes in some cases
  • Resources to support learning, such as:
  • Updating and maintaining IT equipment, including audio-visual gear, projectors and state of the art computers
  • Technology equipment for specialist subjects such as robotics and digital technology
  • Specialist equipment for areas such as music and the performing arts.
  • Subsidising curriculum trips within our community e.g. field trips. These are an important way to link classroom learning with the real world, whilst at the same time creating opportunities for the girls to explore future careers pathways.
Student Utility Fees ($100)

This is a compulsory fee designed to cover actual costs incurred by individual students throughout the year. Such things include:

School Year Book (Magazine), Postage, ENS Attendance Alerts, Corridor Computers, Library Books, Lunchtime recreational activities and equipment, House and Whole School activities such as Athletics Day, Colour Run, and other House activities, medical supplies, additional personal photocopying and archives.

The quickest payment method is through our Parent Portal which can be accessed through our school website HERE.  You will receive a receipt immediately.  Payments can also be made directly into the school bank account or to Student Services which is open from 8.30am to 4.00pm each school day.

Things to note:

  • Your annual donation / Utility fee can be a one off payment or you can pay in instalments eg. 4 payments of $50 via internet banking.

  • While a full donation provides more opportunities for our students, we appreciate a partial donation if there are financial constrains within your family. Every little bit helps.
  • You can claim 1/3 of your donation or partial donation as a tax credit at anytime of the year, or for any of the previous 4 years (after 1 April 2016). Here is the online link through myIRD
