Pasadena is a high achieving, high decile school state-funded school. Unfortunately, the funding we receive from the government fails to provide the type of education and staffing ratios we offer. Each year the Board of  Trustees requests an annual donation which is a key component of our budget. The budget component allows  us to provide: 

  • Additional Specialist Staff 
  • Smaller class sizes 
  • Further Learning Centre staff and extension activities 
  • Purchasing of ICT Equipment 

These costs cannot be met by government funding and we appreciate your contribution in this area. You are able to claim from the IRD your Donation contribution. 


Each year we plan a number of visits, activities, additional learning programmes or guest speakers to supplement our learning programmes. Often there is a cost associated with these. 

The activities include: The Life Education Trust Van, Guest speakers, Health Courses and entry fees to local  resources e.g. the Zoo. These are a voluntary contribution to the total costs.  


Students make products in our Specialists programmes which they may take home at the end of the term or year. This fee covers the supply of materials in Technology, Foods and Arts.  


Mathletics is an online programme that offers a variety of differentiated learning activities. Teachers use this online programme to supplement their maths lessons. 

PAYMENT OPTIONS (Spread over 2022) 

$125.00 per term 

$50.00 per month (10 Months in term time) 

$12.50 per week (40 weeks in term time) 

A receipt will be issued for Donations. 

Where there are difficulties in paying the above please contact Thelma Teesdale in the School Office or the  Principal to discuss ways in which the school can assist with a payment plan.
