Voluntary Donations

Schools are not able to charge compulsory fees for core curriculum related activities or to supplement the funding provided by the government. The board do request that families make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of the quality education provided at Tawatawa - Ridgway. Parents who make such voluntary donations are able to claim tax rebates from the IRD.
