In 2020 Hastings Girls’ High School opted in to the Donations Scheme, which means parents, caregivers, and whānau never have to make a donation to school if they choose not to. If in the case of goods and services, a parent chooses to purchase supplies like pens for their child from the school, then they must pay as per agreed. We will not charge students for enrolment or attendance, or for the delivery of curriculum.
If your child is involved in weekend sports teams or after hours cultural activities (extra-curricular activities), these are optional. If you choose for your child to participate, you may be asked to cover the costs of these activities.
We may charge for sports trips that are outside the curriculum. Participation in these activities is optional, therefore we require payment where agreed that a student can participate. Any charge should be made in advance.
We may ask for a donation for an overnight camp – and then you can choose if you want to pay none, some or all of the donation. If you choose not to make a donation, your child cannot be stopped from attending a camp if it is part of the school’s core learning programme (curriculum).
You need to provide your child with a school uniform.
