School Donation

Our school donation for 2022 has again been set at $230 per child.  Thank you to all our parents who pay the donation every year.

While it is voluntary, without your support we would be unable to provide the quality education you have come to expect from Pigeon Mountain Primary School.  As many of you know, most of our school funding comes from the Ministry of Education.  However, as a Decile 8 school, we receive approximately $800 less per child than a Decile 1 school.

We need to make up the difference and do this by asking for school donations and engaging in fundraising activities throughout the year.  The money raised goes towards vital resources, such as employing additional teachers to maintain class sizes.

We know that for some of our families paying the school donation all at once is difficult.  For this reason you can make part payments each school term.

Payment can be made via:

  • Direct credit a/c 02 0168 0210765 00
  • Online when purchasing stationery from OfficeMax
  • online via your Kindo account

Please note you may qualify for an income tax credit from Inland Revenue in relation to donations made to the school. If you wish to receive a receipt for 2022 donations please email the office to arrange one.

Thank you for your continuing support. We know you, like us, believe nothing is more important than providing our children with a quality education.
