Financial Information

School Donations 2020

It’s that time of the year when we ask you to invest in your daughter’s future through making a valuable contribution by way of your Donation to the College. Much of the equipment and resources we provide here at Wellington Girls’ are not covered by government funding. We rely heavily on the generosity of our parent community to continue to provide the exceptional level of education and experiences that we provide at Wellington Girls’ College.

The following is a breakdown of the Donation requested for 2020 and the activities it will cover:

General Education Support Donation - $310.00 Per Student

The General donation helps provide some of the things that our parents and students tell us they expect at WGC.

Your donation helps pay for:

  • the school Nurse’s clinic which gives 30 hours a week, free access to all students to support their health and wellbeing
  • additional Teacher Aides for in class support
  • some equipment, uniform, admin support & facilities hire for sports
  • equipment, admin support and resources for Music groups
  • a range of consumable items for classrooms and the Library

Technology Donation - $220.00 Per Student

Access to technology for all students and enabling digital connectivity is essential to support learning within WGC. Next year we are planning to invest $488,700 in IT within the school – only $56,200 is funded by the government.

Your donation contributes to the shortfall and helps pay for:

  • our intranet which gives students remote access to all course materials anytime, anywhere
  • high speed broadband over the whole WGC site
  • sophisticated packages for all students taking Technology subjects or Art (Design)
  • two staff who are always available to trouble shoot for students
  • 70 chrome books that are available for students to borrow if they forget their own device

Development Fund Donation - $205.00 Per Family

This fund supports major capital projects which are beyond the scope of the Ministry of Education’s funding. In most cases, the money is paid forward – so that your daughter benefits from the generosity of previous parents and future cohorts will benefit from your donation.

In the last ten years this has included contributions to:

  • the Pipitea Block development
  • the Artificial Turf
  • the Quad and Brook Courts re-development
  • the new signage and wayfinding
  • The Hobson St/Hobson Crescent perimeter fence
  • the upgrading of the cricket nets

The Development fund will support the new building project, with a likely focus being the upgrade of the interior of the Hall and enable us to fitout and furnish the new building to at standard that enhances our learning environment.

Other School Costs

School Based Items and Activities

As part of providing a full programme of activities to meet curriculum requirements and enhance the curriculum for students at WGC, the school has traditionally provided a range of resources and activities for which parents have made payment. Rulings by the Ombudsman and the Inland Revenue Department have resulted in some new rules around how these costs must be described.

When ordering stationery and other resources for your daughter this year, you will notice that some items are marked as “Voluntary Contribution” and others as “Optional”.

Voluntary Contribution:
Those items marked as “voluntary contribution” are items:

    • that the school provides as part of the curriculum
    • for which the school cannot require payment from parents.

Parents can choose whether or not to pay for these items. Regardless of payment, all students enrolled in the subject will be given access to the item. However in the event that a significant number of parents choose not to pay for these items, the school will experience a shortfall in funding. Voluntary Contributions are classed as a donation and qualify for a tax donation credit rebate.

Optional:
Those items marked as “optional” are items:

    • that the school provides as an enhancement to the curriculum
    • for which the school does not receive funding from the Ministry of Education
    • for which the school can require payment before a student can participate in the activity or access the item.

Non-payment of optional items means that your daughter will not participate in the activity or receive the resource. In those cases, the school will provide an alternative option to ensure that your daughter still receives the curriculum requirements (e.g. a classroom based activity, rather than going on a field trip)

Sports Fees

Registration costs range from $20 to $200 depending on the sports code.  Some sports incur larger additional fees for tournaments, travel, coaching and equipment.  Full details of costs can be found under the individual sports on the WGC Sport page

NZQA Fees

From 2019 there are no fees for NZQA

Statements are sent out via email two times a term. Receipts for payments made appear at the bottom of the Statement. Your account can be viewed anytime via My Portal. To log in to My Portal click here. If you have misplaced your username and password please phone the office on 472 5743.

Lockers for 2020

All Student Lockers for 2020 are SOLD OUT

The school has 830 lockers available. If you wish to prepay your locker for 2020 please pay $30 by internet banking into our account:

030518 0027013 002 or 02 – Wellington Girls College
Ref=student’s name & locker

Alternatively you can pay by  eftpos at the student office. Payment received in 2019 will help secure a locker subject to availability and assist with the speed of allocation at the commencement of the 2020 school year. If paid in 2020, there may be a delay of up to a week before allocation can take place or lockers may not be available.

Please check your account and if you have a credit balance on your daughter’s account and would like a locker, please pay the difference between the credit and $30 and we will transfer your credit to the payment of the locker for you.
