Dues and Donations
Families are required to make compulsory payments to the proprietor as a condition of their child's enrolment at Tamariki School. The amount charged is approved by the Minister of Education, and must be spent for specified purposes. This money is used to pay for capital development, insurance, land and building purchase, and repayment of loans used to develop the buildings used by the school.
Tamariki families are also asked to pay a regular donation to the proprietor to fund the high adult-to-child ratio and other costs demanded by our special character. The Society collects these donations and then passes them over to the Board to use in the running of the school. Tax donation receipts are issued each April for these donations.
