School Donations

Here at Huapai District School we are seeking to develop children who are confident and self assured in purpose, who carry a voice of positive influence and consistently deliver at their best.

Donations 2024

Our school donation is set at $225 for the first child for the year, $400 for two children and $500 for a family of three or more.
 
Our school is allocated a set amount of money, or ‘operational funding’ from the Ministry of Education to run the school each year, which covers everything except teachers’ wages. The ongoing costs of our buildings, resources, all non teaching staff  – everything comes out of this allocation.  To complicate things further the Government has directed schools to make no requests of parents for anything curriculum related.

It’s getting real tough to keep things happening and improving in the school without your donation. Your donation is our single most effective means of raising funds to do this.

I can personally guarantee, every dollar received through school donations will be used for resources that will touch the hands of children. We want to improve our reading and math resources, our sports resources, our classroom construction and our play resources. We want to supply more school owned devices to students. We want more technology in our classrooms. We want the best we can have for our children.

Your support of our school via your school donation is what takes us from good to great! 
 
Please note: school donations are not compulsory and rely on the goodwill and support of our parents to make this choice to support the school.   
School donations attract a 30% tax rebate also (available in the 2024 tax year if paid by 31st March 2024).
