School Donations

School donation ‘invoices’ have been sent home with your child(ren) this week. Please check your eldest child’s bag for your invoice.

Many people wonder what school donations are and what they are used for. Here are some FAQ about the donations:

Q: What does this donation cover?

A: The donation helps the school purchase resources that might not otherwise be possible.

 

Q: Have I not already paid this?

A: Most families have not. The payment at the start of the year included stationery and activity fee (for class trips). We delay the donation invoices to allow families to take a ‘breather’ after the large costs associated with the start of a school year.

 

Q: How can I pay the donation?

A: There are many ways to pay – cash, cheque, EFTPOS, direct credit, or by instalment. For payment by direct credit, our bank account number is 03-0905-0905218-00

 

Q: Can I claim back this donation in my tax?

A: Yes. You can claim up to 33% of the donation. For more information on tax credits go towww.ird.govt.nz/income-tax-individual/tax-credits/dch-taxcredits/#claim

 

Q: If I have an automatic payment, does the donation automatically came off my account?

A: No, we need your permission to take if off, as donations are voluntary payments.

Thank you all for your support!
