Kia ora koutou,
Our school fees are made up of compulsory and voluntary payments. The compulsory portion of the school fees (attendance dues) largely covers capital works such as classrooms and the repayment of debt associated with them. The voluntary portion is crucial to what we can provide for our students, teachers and the environment they teach and learn in, whether that be inside or outside the classroom.
To allow for the increased costs of running the school and to ensure we continue to provide the best for our students and staff the Board resolved to increase the resource and infrastructure contribution by $50 per annum to $750 commencing next year. We remind you the voluntary contributions are tax deductible. We are very mindful of financial pressures the school community faces in these uncertain times and have kept the increase as minimal as possible.
The Board thanks you for your continued commitment to the College and making it such a vibrant place for our young men.
