Schools are not able to charge compulsory fees for core curriculum related activities or to supplement the funding provided by the government. The board do request that families make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of the quality education provided at Ridgway School. Parents who make such voluntary donations are able to claim tax rebates from the IRD. (Click here to find out more about tax rebates.)
General Voluntary Donation
This donation allows us to provide the extras to offer a full and varied curriculum. It helps to pay for art supplies, science equipment, PE gear and teaching resources.
In 2017 the board have requested the following amounts be paid as a voluntary contribution:
|Voluntary Donation Amounts|
|Family Payment||per term||per year|
|Two children||$108 with 10% discount||$432 with 10% discount|
|Three children||$162 with 10% discount||$648 with 10% discount|
Please note that the amount requested has remained unchanged since 2013.
