Financial Contributions

As part of being a member of a Catholic School Community, there is a financial commitment required from families to ensure the provision of an excellent Catholic education in a well cared for environment.

School Donation
In general terms the Board of Trustees use the general purpose contributions to employ additional teaching resources and to ensure that each classroom is appropriately resourced in its curriculum requirements. These may include:
• Learning Support (additional to Ministry of Education funding)
• Library Support
• Learning Enrichment
• ICT Resources
• Teacher’s Professional Development

Attendance Dues
Attendance dues are approved by the Minister of Education under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020 and a condition of enrolment at Monte Cecilia Catholic School. Attendance Dues are charged for all students who attend Catholic Schools in New Zealand. Attendance Dues are used to repay loans for building works done at schools in the Auckland Diocese, property related costs including school building works, buildings insurance and costs directly associated with the administration of attendance dues. Attendance Dues are collected by Monte Cecilia Catholic School on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland.
The attendance dues collected by Monte Cecilia Catholic School are forwarded to Auckland Common Fund Limited, a company established by the proprietors of Catholic integrated schools in the Diocese of Auckland responsible for the collection of attendance dues.

Special Catholic Character Contributions
Special Character Contributions collected on behalf of the Proprietor are permitted under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020. These contributions are eligible for a taxation rebate.

Attendance Dues can be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, per term or by regular installment.

More information is available from our school office manager,
Michelle Follows 09 625 5018 [email protected]
on attendance dues if you require further help.

Financial Assistance
Financial assistance is available to assist families who may need financial support with the payment of attendance dues for preference students attending Catholic schools in Auckland Diocese, both primary and secondary. Families facing financial difficulties can contact our school office for further information.
