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. ​

Should you have any queries please contact Tony Hitchcock by email: thitchcock@whenuapai.school.nz
