Announcement : 

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Whānau,   The Ministry of Education (MoE) is proposing the establishment of a new Year 1-8 co-educational primary school in Massey Redhills, Auckland.   A preferred site for the proposed Massey Redhills Primary School has been identified within the live zoned Redhills precinct area west of Fred Taylor Drive.  To cater for school aged population growth in the short term, the proposed new school will be temporarily located at 13 – 15 Trig Road, Whenuapai.  The proposed school would be known as Massey Redhills Primary School during its establishment.  The foundation learners and staff of the school would start at the Trig Road site and move to the permanent school site in Massey Redhills when it is built and ready for occupation.     As part of the proposal, the MoE is required to consult with the Board of any state school whose roll might be affected if the school was established.   If you have any feedback on this proposal, please email me at by Friday, 15 October 2021. Your responses will be collated and form part of our feedback provided to the MoE (please note – the deadline stated in the attached letter has now been extended).   Subject to the Minister establishing the proposed new school, the MoE are also seeking nominations for the Establishment Board of the new school. Information about the role of the Establishment Board, a nomination form and the Eligibility Attestation form are attached for anyone who is interested.    Massey – Redhills – Letter consult.docx EBOT Massey – Redhills – Info pack candidates EBOTs.docx   Ngā mihi nui,   Jo Wright Principal’s PA


School Donations

​Thank you for choosing to send your child / children to Whenuapai School.  We are looking forward to a year full of opportunities, experiences and learning adventures.

To aid us in providing your children with the best learning environment we depend on your school donations. Your donations go directly towards reading resources, computer software, mathematics equipment, photocopying and essential operations and materials for the learning process.

Our school donations for 2021 will be:

1 child           $180 (tax refund $60)

2+ children    $330 (tax refund $110)

In addition there is a further donation to cover classroom consumables such as paints, coloured paper, string, classroom stationery (to minimise the additional stationery each child requires) and ICT.

In 2021 the classroom donation is: 

Year 0-3: $60 (tax refund $20)

Year 4-8:  $90 (tax refund $30)

While these amounts are considered a donation, we rely heavily on them.  The operational grant from the Ministry of Education covers only the basic administration, teaching and property running costs of the school – not the additional resources and equipment that parents expect and want to be available for their children to enhance effective teaching and learning. 

We are happy to discuss options and/or assist with setting up an automatic payment.

Your donation to the school is tax deductible. Just download form IR526 from the Inland Revenue website and send it off to IRD with your donation receipts attached.

We appreciate your on-going support and involvement in your child’s education. ​
