Donations and Activity Fees


Whangaparaoa Primary School is rated decile 9. While this has many advantages (community, student attitude, high achievement etc.), its biggest difficulty is that annually we receive only a fraction of the Ministry of Education funding that is given to Low Decile Schools (approximately $800 per student LESS than a decile 1 school).

In 2018 our projected expenses to run the school exceeds income by $112,000.

This is why we depend on our parent community for significant levels of support and fundraising to try to give our students as many opportunities as possible and not disadvantage them.

We therefore ask parents to make an annual donation, which the Board of Trustees tries to keep to a minimum, but without which, would be impossible to function. Any payments through the year of instalments, would also be appreciated.


2018 Donation Requested               Compulsory Items

Two Children $230 Linc-Ed Student Management System $10.00 per child
Three or more children $255 Year 3-6 Swimming (Leisure Centre Lessons) $30.00 per child



In 2018 fees for activities will be requested as they arise.
