School Donations will be $280.00 per child for 2023. If you can pay the donation prior to 31st March 2023 we ask for a reduced amount of $260 per child. (If paying via Kindo just overwrite the full amount with the reduced amount, the reduction will be processed by the office once payment is received.)
We know that some families will not be able to pay the full amount all at once, however we do appreciate any payment our parents can make. As a school with a low Equity Index of 403 (previously Decile 10) we are not eligible for the Governments 'Donations Free' scheme and we receive less funding per student than schools in other areas where the Equity Index is higher. The funds we receive as donations really make a huge difference to our school.
School Donations may be paid via Kindo, direct credit (06 0153 0216435 00 - please use your child's name and room number as a reference) or in the school office by eftpos or cash. You are welcome to pay the school donation in instalments.
If you have paid via Kindo then your donation receipt will be attached to the email you receive after payment. For previous years’ receipts that have been paid via Kindo you can go to the ‘My Orders’ tab and re-send the receipt to yourself very easily.
If you have paid your donation by any other method you will receive your receipt via email when the payment is processed by the office. If you need copies of previous year’s receipts then please contact Nicky who will be happy to assist you (email@example.com)
Donation receipts that are submitted to the IRD are eligible for a refund of 33% of the amount you have paid. You can submit donation receipts for up to 5 previous years. There are now 2 ways in which you can do this;
- Submit your receipts online via ‘MyIR’ on the IRD website. You just need a pdf of the donation receipt, log on to your ‘MyIr’ account and upload the receipt and the details there.
- Send a completed IR526 form with a copy of the donation receipt by post - forms are attached below. (Available for completed tax years only)
