In order to continue providing the high quality of education and facilities that Maungawhau is known for we ask that our families pay a donation to help us top up the money we receive from the Government and we hope you will support us in this effort. We appreciate your support and contributions are gratefully received. New Zealand Schools are not funded equally.  Maungawhau School is classified as a Decile 10 school. This means that we get less funding per student than lower decile schools.  We rely on parental support such as the voluntary donation and local raised  fundraising.   

Please note that last payments offered at reduced rate are due on 31st March of each year, after this date discounts are no longer offered. All requests for money are detailed in writing and sent to you.

Children should not have money at school except to pay for extra curricular activities such as sport zone events which we’ll communicate to you in advance.

All payments can be made online with Kindo or at the school office.

We also accept payments via telephone, internet, or you can bank directly into our bank account. Please clearly label payments with your child’s name and your reason for payment e.g. donation, activity fee, out of school care etc.

Activity Fees
Extracurricular activities refer to an activity that is not a part of the delivery of the core curriculum at school but is provided to our students to enrich and enhance their learning experience.

Families will be informed in advance of any such activity and the cost for their child to participate. Examples include school trips, visiting drama groups, senior school camp, mathletics and reading eggs online programmes, sport team zone competitions, netball and flippaball. We shall provide a permission form which you’ll need to sign in advance before your child can participate in the extracurricular activity. If there is genuine hardship in paying for any of the extracurricular activities, please come and have a confidential and sensitive discussion with our team at the school office.

Mathletics and Reading Eggs – the school has obtained a student licence for these valuable online learning programmes and pass them onto parents at a heavily discounted price. Children will be provided a logon and password once a parent has opted for their child to join these online programmes by making the requested payment.
