Freemans Bay School Payments
Freemans Bay School Donation 2018
Dear Parents & Caregivers,
The family donations will allow us to fund extra staffing to provide:
• Additional teachers to reduce class sizes
• Additional teacher time for e-learning/curriculum support
• Reading Recovery programme
• ESOL and Learning support programme
• Specialist music programme
This year the school donation has been set at $300 per child, or $400 for families with more than one child at the school. We wish to provide pupils with the best learning experience we can achieve. Your donation will directly benefit all children at the school.
You will receive a letter to encourage you to pay your family donation to support provision of extra staffing at Freemans Bay School. Thank you to those who have already asked about and paid their family donation.
Payment of the family donation is voluntary and we respect that. We also acknowledge that some families are not in a position to pay the donation, either in one lump sum or at all.
The Board wishes every parent and caregiver to understand what the money from the annual donation enables the school to do for all pupils.
If you would rather spread your donation we can arrange automatic payment deductions from your bank account or you can make periodic payments to the school office. Thank you to those parents who choose to support Freemans Bay School by paying the voluntary student donation. Remember that the donation is tax deductible!
We regard annual parental contributions as the fairest and most feasible way to provide educational opportunities for all our children. This view is shared by most parents at the school, regardless of their ability to pay. Please support our school. The contribution we suggest per child equates to only a little over a dollar a day! We rely on parental donations so that we can continue to meet and exceed your expectations about what we can deliver for all of our children.
Many thanks for your support – we really appreciate it.
