Donations / Fees

Each year it is necessary to raise funds to purchase equipment and facilities that cannot be covered by the school's operational funding. A description of these fundraising endeavours are outlined below. For more information please email Anne, our finance officer: finance@nelsoncentral.school.nz.

Sponsorship of Newsletter

We can provide advertising for you on our fortnightly newsletter which is circulated to approximately 350 families. Costs vary from $5 to $30 depending on the size of the advertisement. This could benefit your business or workplace and will assist the school to keep costs down. Please contact the office if you are interested.

Events and Trips

Each year there are various class and syndicate activities such as camps and school trips outside the classroom. Sometimes there will be a fee in order for your child to participate. We are always mindful of the challenge these can be for some families and so we attempt to keep activity fees to a minimum. If you have any hardship in meeting these costs, please contact our principal to discuss options.
