School Donations

A message from the Board of Trustees

Thank you to the school community for providing feedback on the school donation changes proposed by the government in their recent budget. The survey response was 100% in favour of opting into the government’s scheme. At the last meeting, the Board passed a motion stating: “The Board opts into the government school donations scheme to receive $150 per student, per year, as long as they agree not to ask parents and caregivers for donations.  The Board accepts the exception from the Minister whereby they can still seek donations for school camps and other curriculum-related trips where students are expected to be away overnight.” This change takes effect as of January 2020, this means that you will continue to be asked for annual school donations until the start of next year.
