School Donations Consultation

Please complete our survey!!

A Budget 2019 initiative will see Decile 1-7 state and state integrated Boards of Trustees able to choose to receive a $150 per student, per year payment instead of seeking donations from parents.

Around 1,700 schools, including ours will be eligible to join the scheme.

Although donations to schools are voluntary, families can feel under pressure to pay them and this can place pressure on household budgets. This initiative is designed to alleviate that pressure and expectation.

Boards of Trustees will need to opt-in to the scheme and have been asked to consult their communities regarding this initiative. This is the purpose of the short survey on this link.

Boards of Trustees that opt-in to the donations scheme will still be able to ask parents and guardians for payments related to optional activities outside the curriculum and costs for materials or workbooks.
