Stationery information

All items purchased via the school are approximate pricing until the start of the new year. Parents will be invoiced in February. This will include the compulsory administration fee and general school donation. If students purchase their stationery from Stratford Paperplus or the Warehouse Stationery in New Plymouth, this assists the school in raising funds to purchase library and reference books.
Parents are also able to use the OfficeMax MySchool website as all our lists are available there.
Please take a list with you when you purchase your stationery.

General Fee/Donation

All parents and caregivers are asked to make a payment of $70 per student ($100 maximum for 2 or more students per family) for general fees/donation each year. This fee can be paid as a single payment; four term payments of $20.00 per term or via an automatic payment or internet banking. See Mrs Terry in the main school office for more information.
The general fee covers the costs of basic materials for all core subjects in year 9 and 10, the school diary for junior students and subsidizes costs for visiting performances at school, the school magazine, basic curriculum materials and curriculum field trips and sports trips. The school magazine “The Peak” is available to all students who pay this fee.

Administration Fee

All students will pay an administration fee of $20.00 per year. Upon payment of this charge, students will receive a $6.50 printing allocation to allow them to print or photocopy. Students can top up their printing accounts at the student office. Students will have their ID Card printed once this fee is paid.

Automatic Payment

Parents can set up an automatic payment to cover items required for your students schooling. Please see the Executive Officer, Mrs S Terry, to set up this facility at school. When setting up the automatic payment consider a minimum payment of $15.00 per week, which is sufficient to pay for all school, exam, curriculum and sport costs for a student during the year.
The following procedures apply to the use of funds in an automatic payment account.
  • Once parents build up a credit balance on their automatic payment account, this can be used to pay for any costs associated with school.
  • Other items such as locker hire, subject materials and stationery (subject fees, workbooks) must be paid for at the time of purchase.
  • Uniform and stationery items at the start of the year may be booked onto your account if you have a credit balance.


The school has two Eftpos machines for payment of school accounts. One is in the main office and one in the student office.

Internet Banking

Parents are able to pay with internet banking - details are on the school invoice. Please remember to use the student name and/or invoice detail as reference for any payments
