We endeavour to keep additional costs and fees at a level which is mindful of the financial resources of families. To help families, an automatic payment arrangement can be put in place which allows for gradual repayments of costs such as uniform, stationery and subject fees up to the value of $750. Repayments must be set at a rate which will clear accounts by the end of each year. A deposit of 10% is required.
School Activity Donation:
The School Activity donation is $100 per pupil, or $150 for two or more pupils in the family. This covers part of the cost of the school magazine, sporting equipment, fare subsidies, visiting performance groups and other opportunities not covered by to Ministry funding.
Stationery and Textbooks:
The College has a Stationery Shop which provides quality stationery at competitive prices. All pupils new to the College are required to pay a once-only textbook deposit of $20, this is refundable upon leaving school. Pupils must pay for any loan books lost, destroyed or damaged.
Specific Subject Fees:
The school has a responsibility to offer programmes which provide a wide range of experiences and also satisfy national course requirements. We endeavour to do this while keeping subject fees as low as possible. Fees and costs for each subject is provided in the Subject Information Guides.
These are collected on behalf of NZQA (NZ Qualifications Authority) for senior students doing NCEA. They are normally due to be paid by mid-September.
Sports Fees and Costs:
Students participating in co-curricular sporting codes and teams are likely to have fees and costs associated with this. Sports fees are made known through the school newsletter and must be paid at the beginning of the sports season.
