The school donation is set annually by the Board of Trustees. Unfortunately the Government does not fund our school for the level of resources and facilities that our parents want for their children and have come to expect for many years.
The school donations are collected annually to help ensure that Cornwall Park District School continues to provide the best resources for our children’s learning, by providing high quality professional learning opportunities for teachers, specialist teachers above government funding, as well as extra personnel to provide a range of learning interventions and in-class support for a number of learners.
So please support us to better than before by contributing through payment of your school donation.
There are several ways to pay: Cash, Cheque, Eftpos, Credit Card or Internet Banking.

TRIPS, CAMPS AND ACTIVITIES
In November 2016 the Ministry of Education made further clarification to their existing guidelines regarding what parents could and could not be charged for in State schools.
This has some significant implications for our school going forward. For example, for Year 5 and 6 camps we are unable to charge for these. However, the school does not budget to cover the costs of current class trips/ camps each year from school funds, and we would therefore still need to request a contribution to cover these. While we are aware that payment can not be enforced, please appreciate that for the camp and class trips to go ahead we are dependent on these contributions.
If people choose not to contribute, then we may be forced to cancel an event in order to protect the school financially. We will be monitoring any impact throughout the year and if the level of contributions become an issue we will then need to decide if we are able to continue to offer such trips/camps in the future.
In order to be fair to all we have decided that we will request a contribution each time a class excursion/ event is being offered throughout the year.
Bookings & Payments through Enrolmy for Instrumental Lessons, Flippaball & Basketball
We are working with EnrolMy for registration and payment for your child’s participation in school sports teams and itinerant music lessons. Some of you may have already used this for Netball and Flippaball this term. The benefit of using this new system is that registration and payment is in one place. (This saves you having to go online to do internet banking or visit the school office). As these activities are additional to the curriculum, payment must be received before teams can be registered and/or music lessons can begin. The school will of course endeavour to support parents who have special circumstances and who have made prior arrangement with us.
