Richmond View School is a state-integrated school which means we do not receive funding from the Ministry of Education for capital works. RVS seeks to be transparent with its fees including attendance dues, extra-curricular and others. RVS' fees are among the lowest in New Zealand for state-integrated education.
School fees are comprised of two components.
2019 Fee Schedule:
Attendance Dues per child = $600.00 per year
Special Character Donation (Child 1) = $100.00
Special Character Donation (Child 2) = $85.00
Special Character Donation (Child 3 +) = $75.00
Please note that all School fees and other charges are due and payable at the time specified on accounts unless other arrangements are made with the School.
Attendance Dues are determined and used by the Proprietor of RVS to build and maintain the property.
SPECIAL CHARACTER DONATION
The Special Character Donation is used to keep our special "Christian" character foremost in our school. It is used for such things as The Easter Event at Rarangi, Year 8 Girl's Shine Program, The School Production, Christian Curriculum resources, Staff Christian Education Professional Development, Interact Curriculum resources, and the Zest Program.
The Ministry of Education will not fund the special character curriculum within the school.
This investment has a significant return in Christian Character development in our children. You can also claim 33% back from the IRD in your tax rebate at the end of the financial year.
