In November 2019, it was decided to accept the Ministry’s offer to opt in to the donations scheme which means parents are no longer requested to pay an annual voluntary donation of $250. This will result in significant savings for parents as we are able to pass on some of the revenue to cover ID cards and printing, Yearbook, day-trips and outside speakers who visit the school to address the students. In the past, voluntary donations have been used for capital projects including ICT equipment, a policy we intend continuing. The Board has decided to continue to opt into this scheme for 2022.
In terms of the Guidelines, a fee will be requested for the following:
- overnight trips (including the Year 7 Camp)
- optional DEEP courses and extra-curricular activities
- courses with a take home component including digital platforms
A device is also recommended for all students as much of our curriculum is delivered using digital technology which can be used at home or in school.
In order to maintain and enhance our high standards of innovative learning, additional resources are needed and as such, parents are requested to pay for the items listed below.
