College Financial Contributions

Financial Contributions

The Sacred Heart College Board of Trustees is responsible for collecting all Financial Contributions from parents/caregivers. The Sacred Heart College Board does this on its own behalf and on behalf of the Proprietor, Sacred Heart College Limited, (owned by the Marist Brothers), the Catholic Education Services Board and Sacred Heart College Development Foundation Trust. 

The Board of Trustees has agreed to spread the collection of the Financial Contributions equally over the four terms during the year.
Years 7 to 13                             $883 per term ($3,532 per year) GST exempt

Special Character Contributions collected on behalf of the Proprietor are raised in terms of Section 451 of the Education Act 1989. Proprietor Contributions collected on behalf of the Proprietor are raised in terms of Section 451 of the Education Act 1989. Contributions are tax deductible.

Special Catholic Character Contributions

The Catholic Special Character contribution is a voluntary donation of $12.50 per term ($50 per annum) per student. This contribution provides the main source of funding for all services provided to Sacred Heart College by the Catholic Education Services Board. No contributions are made by the Government for these services. The Catholic Education Services Board assists schools to provide a Catholic education for your child through the preservation and enhancement of the Catholic Special Character in our schools.

An invoice will be issued every term. All Financial Contributions and Attendance Dues are payable a term in advance. The Board of Trustees reviews Financial Contributions annually. The Auckland Common Fund sets the Attendance Dues annually on behalf of the Proprietor. Options for payment are by Cash, Cheque or Automatic Debit fortnightly or monthly. Credit card, Eftpos and Internet banking facilities are available.

More information is available from the College office. Please contact Mrs Tricia Gerrard on 09 529 3660, ext 809, if you require further information or need any assistance.
