School Donations, Curriculum Activities & Swimming
For those who like to get school expenses out of the way early, school donation, curriculum activities and swimming amounts are:
To help supplement school funds, the Board of Trustees asks for a voluntary donation from each family annually. The suggested amount is $100 per pupil or $180 per family. These donations are used to purchase resources to support children’s learning.
The school donation is tax deductible which means you can claim one third back from Inland Revenue.
We ask for $25.00 per term per child. This money is used to plan activities and trips on and off site, e.g, Orana Park visits, Art Gallery Programmes.
These are confirmed annually.
Payment may be made at school by cash or eftpos (sorry no credit cards), or you are welcome to pay directly to our ASB bank account: St Albans School 12-3151-0178176-00. Please reference your payment with the name of your eldest child at school. Your account status can be accessed via your STAr login. You are most welcome to pay by small weekly or fortnightly instalments. Credit card payments are available via Stripe through the Hero app – fees apply.
ACORN Fund (Accessing Children’s Resources & Opportunities to meet their Needs)
The Board of Trustees provides annual funding to enable children to access school charter related educational activities in situations of financial need. This may, for example, be a contribution towards fees for sports fees, exam costs, uniforms, stationery, camp, swimming or activities.
Applications should be made in writing to the Principal and funding is payable only on evidence of an invoice. No individual child can be awarded more than $70 a year.
