School Donations – Parents and caregivers invest in their daughter’s future by way of a donation to the College. The money received from donations enables us to provide equipment and resources which are not covered by state funding, but which we believe are vital to providing the level of education expected of us.
Technology Donation – all families are asked to contribute towards the ongoing cost of providing state of the art technology facilities for students.
Development Fund Donation – the Development Fund, managed by the Board of Trustees, invites contributions towards capital projects that are not provided for by the Ministry of Education. In 2011 $1.2m was contributed to the new Pipitea building. In 2013 the Development Fund contributed funds for the creation of an artificial turf. In 2014 the Development Fund was involved in fundraising to help the school re-develop the quad and courts.
Donations to the College may be tax deductible. Please note school donations will be reassessed each year and changes may occur.
