School Donation 2020

Our parents help provide a quality education for our students by giving a voluntary contribution. The donations are used to give your daughter opportunities beyond what is funded by the government, because we know they make a real difference to her success:

  • Employing more than 20 additional teachers so we can offer a wide range of subject choices and smaller classes in some cases.
  • Resources to support learning, such as:
    • updating and maintaining IT equipment, including audio-visual gear, projectors and state-of-the-art computers
    • technology equipment for specialist subjects such as STEAM and robotics
    • specialist equipment for areas such as music, sports and performing arts
  • Subsidising curriculum trips to the community, including teacher relief costs. These are an important way for students to connect their classroom learning to the workplace, and create opportunities for future career paths.
  • Extra coaching and tuition costs for groups such as sports and music.

The school donation for 2020 is $540 per student, or $725 for families with two or more students at WGHS. The quickest method of payment is through the parent portal which can be accessed from the school website, and you will receive a receipt immediately. Payments can also be made directly into the school bank account 02-0272-0471113-000 or at the Payments Office which is open from 8am to 3.15pm.
Things to note:

  • Your annual donation can be a one-off payment, or you can pay installments weekly ($10.38 single student/$13.94 two or more students), fortnightly ($20.77/$27.88), monthly ($45/$60.41) or per term ($135/$181.25) via internet banking.
  • While a full donation provides more opportunities for our students, we appreciate a partial donation if there are financial constraints within your family. Every bit helps.
  • You can claim one third of your full or partial donation as a tax credit – so for the $540 donation you can receive $180 which means your donation costs you $360 (receive $242 for the $725 donation which makes it $483). Send your receipt with the IR526 form to Inland Revenue.
  • A donation of more than $100 enables your daughter to receive a free Year Book at the end of the year.
  • Value option of $725 for families with two or more students at WGHS.
  • If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email

Your daughter benefits from the contributions of current parents and those of previous parents. Each generation ‘pays it forward’ to support the high standard of teaching and facilities that benefit every student. We invite you to join us in continuing to create a culture and a school where every student can thrive. Thank you.

  • Should you wish to pay for your school donation via regular instalments (weekly, fortnightly or monthly), please organise through your own bank Internet Banking system.
