If there are trips which have a cost associated with them, communication will be sent via email or letter by teachers. Payment is required at the time of registration of interest.

Automatic Payments to Cover College Costs 

Many parents/caregivers find that there are heavy costs at the beginning of the College year. The College offers an automatic payment option which assists in spreading the cost of uniform, sports, school donations, camps and other activities. 

  • A payment of $15 per week would be required for most students. 
  • This money is then recorded against the student’s financial record and used to cover school based activities. 
  • Financial information is available to parents via the Parental Portal
    • You will require the caregiver password to view this
    • Please contact the office if you need assistance with this password 

Unfortunately, uniform cannot be provided on credit unless a regular pattern of automatic payments has been established.

For more information, please see the forms below, or ring the finance office at the College on 04 902 5170 ext 843 or 853

General Donation

Thank you to all parents and caregivers who pay this donation.  It is requested by the Paraparaumu College Board and is used for a variety of student-orientated programmes and activities.  Payment of it is much appreciated. 

Subject Donations

These donations are directly relevant to the subjects your student is taking.  Payment of these amounts means the College will be able to continue with its delivery of the curriculum using a variety of teaching resources.  Included in this donation are workbooks, trips and activities, the costs of which are covered by these requests.  Your support and payment is appreciated. 

Donations are tax deductable. For details please refer to the relevant IRD information.  

Sports and Extra-curricular Payments

Should your student take the opportunities offered by the College to participate in sport, camps (e.g. Hilary Outdoors Tongariro) or performances, these are on a user pays basis and not covered by our donation requests.  All costs for these activities must be paid for prior to participation.  

A number of our fees including sport fees and some other extra-curricular activities can now be paid online at the time of registration.
