SCHOOL DONATIONS 2017
As you are aware the funding that the Ministry of Education provides us is inadequate to run Riverhead School and does not meet the expectations of teachers, students and parents alike. Nor does it meet the requirements of a school, which strives to continually keep up with the latest initiatives, and provide appropriate resources and the best of technology. Accordingly, we ask that parents make a donation to bridge this gap and contribute to the learning of their children. The PTA , class co-ordinators and staff work tirelessly to raise funds with the support of the community, International Students, and outside grant opportunities. But is just not enough. We want to continue to offer the best in resources, consumables, technology, furnishings, play ground equipment, sports gear, readers, library books, and more, but we need your help. The Board of Trustees, made the decision that we need to make changes to the school donations amount, and align the current costs with local schools.
The donations set for 2017 are as follows:
1 child - $220 (discount if paid before 31 March - $200)
2 children - $440 (discount if paid before 31 March - $400)
3 children - $590 (discount if paid before 31 March - $550)
4 children – $740 (discount if paid before 31 March - $700)
When put into terms, this equates to $1.00 a day, $5.00 a week that you are contributing to your child’s education. We understand that money at this time of the year can be difficult, so a payment option is available per term. Please contact Ruth and she can set you up.
