Why Pay the Voluntary Contribution?
Your school donation provides crucial funding for many of the vital services we offer students. As a high decile school (now renamed the Equity Index), our government funding per student is lower than schools with a higher index, leaving Aquinas with a funding shortfall. We need your support.

Your school donation helps pay for additional staffing above Ministry-approved levels and boosts our teacher aide funding. It bankrolls targeted programmes for literacy and numeracy support, student well-being services, and additional school counsellors. Unlike most schools, we have two counsellors — a staffing commitment that significantly exceeds our government funding.

Funding from your donation helps support students in need, ensuring they can attend school trips, take part in sports teams and receive a school uniform. It also assists Aquinas families experiencing hardship.
