All New Zealand Schools are funded by the Ministry of Education according to their decile rating. Howick Primary School is decile 8.
While this has many advantages such as a vibrant learning community, positive student attitudes, and strong work ethics. It’s biggest difficulty is that annually we receive only a fraction of the Ministry of Education funding that is given to low decile schools.
This has a huge impact on what we can offer our students.
Our goal is to inspire our HPS parents to partner with us by paying the school donation. We also aim to inform all our families about how school donation payments also qualify for tax credits.
The HPS School Donation is:
- $220 per student.
- This is capped at $500 for our families with 3 or more children.
- A $20 discount per student is also available for families who pay before March 31st.
- Payment can be made either in full or instalment by cheque, cash, eft pos, credit/debit card, or Kindo Online Shop.
- For those wishing to pay using online banking our HPS Account Number is:
12 3089 0282406 00
