St Patrick’s College: Costs for 2018

For further detail on these costs please refer to our College Website
Please note: You can claim a tax credit or rebate from IRD for all donations.

1. Activity and Resources Donation: $400 per student or $500 per family
This donation plays a significant part in funding some of the operating costs of the College. Government funding only provides funds for basic resources. This donation is used for additional learning materials in all learning areas, for maintaining and upgrading our computer network and digital projectors and assists with sports and cultural activities.

2. Special Character and Stakeholder Donation: $500 per family
This donation covers some of the special character costs borne by our Board of Proprietors for our College Priest and Chaplaincy Assistant, the costs of retreats, and our National Network of Marist Schools Levy. It assists our Proprietor with some of the significant property costs they are facing for seismic strengthening, roof replacements, ongoing maintenance and planning for the future. It also supports the work of our stakeholder groups.

3. Other Fees and donations: Sports registration fees, NZQA fees, individual subject donations, camps donations and donations for music tuition will be different for each student. All students will be charged $20 for a school diary and an ID Card.

4. Attendance Dues: Payable to the Archdiocese of Wellington $995 per student (for 2018)
Attendance Dues are required in the Archdiocese of Wellington under the terms of the Education Act. These Dues are determined by our Archdiocese and approved by the Minister of Education. They go into a Diocesan Common Fund together with the Attendance Dues from over 80 other schools and are used to cover insurance costs for our College buildings and to service historical debt incurred at the time of integration when all Catholic schools had to be modernised. These dues will be invoiced directly to you by the Archdiocese.

We recommend that families pay $20 a week to the College to cover the costs of fees and donations and $20 a week to the Archdiocese to cover the cost of Attendance Dues.

The College Bank Account Number is 06 0513 0193557 00
