School Donations 2018

School Donations

School Donations for 2018 are:

$50 for one child

$75 for two or more children from the same family

These are tax deductible and voluntary!

In previous years your school donations were used to subsidise specific coaches (you also may have paid a small contribution to this as well) to come into the school and work with your children eg

Fundamental Skills

Athletics Coaching

Ride-on Marlborough

Senior Tournament Volleyball

We also subsidised School trips, Camps and Pet Day.

Your donation will be used in a similar way in 2017 to enhance student learning.

Cyber Safety

The Internet is an intrinsic part of everyday life, with four out of five of us spending more than an hour online everyday. It connects us with communities worldwide and allows us to share and export our ideas globally. For schools it provides access to a vast amount of educational resources, learning for students who are geographically isolated, and provides a platform for students and teachers to collaborate with others. 

While the Internet offers a wide range of positive and enriching experiences, from time to time people may have a negative experience. Although young people in your school community may be at greater risk because they do not, for example, think before they share or know how to respond appropriately to a bad online situation. In our experience, young people need guidance on what is acceptable in the digital space, just as they do in the offline world.

A booklet is available at school on Staying Safe Online: Cyber safety Tips from New 
Zealand’s Leading Online Companies. Compiled by NetSafe in collaboration with Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Trade Me and Twitter, this booklet contains clear and practical tips to help Kiwis use the Internet in a positive way.

This booklet will be helpful in demonstrating how easy online safety features are to use, you can block, report and resolve bad behaviour online and there are a number of tools adults can use to provide a safe online environment for young people for whom they have a duty of care. Digital copies can be accessed from www.netsafe.org.co
