The dental clinic is operated by Canterbury Health Board. Most children have been enrolled at the Dental Clinic before coming to school. If this is not the case it is important that parents enrol their child for dental treatment. Call Centre 0800 846 983
School Donation and Activity Contributions
Requests for contributions towards the school donation and curriculum associated activities are forwarded to parents/caregivers at the beginning of each term. The school donation is $175.00 per year ($47.75 each term). Please be aware that this is a donation and therefore parents are not obligated to pay. School donations however, are an important component in the school’s fundraising and without them we would not be able to provide the same level of learning support and high standard of teaching programmes. Parents/Caregivers will receive notification of upcoming trips or activities; your contribution towards these costs would be appreciated within the term the trip or activity occurs. For large expense items e.g. swimming lessons, camps, skiing etc, payments are to be made in advance of the trip. The school is happy to accept regular part payments throughout the year, and offers internet banking facilities, EFTPOS, cheque or cash. We encourage parents to utilise internet banking and EFTPOS so there is minimal cash kept on the school premises. Office staff would be really grateful if these two forms of payments could be used if at all possible as it has a huge impact on the amount of paper work that needs to be done. If you must send cash or cheques to school there is the drop off box at reception for you to leave your payments in. Please ensure the envelope is clearly marked with your child’s name and room number and is not sent to the classroom. For those who wish to make internet payments, the school account number can be found on the bottom of your child’s statement. If you request a receipt it will be posted home.
