Notes regarding payments and donations to Raphael House

Raphael House Rudolf Steiner School Board of Trustees “Board” (an educational crown entity) is a separate legal entity from the Rudolf Steiner School Trust (Wgtn) “Proprietor” (a Charitable Trust) so funds must be kept separate.  Funds must be paid to the nominated bank accounts.

We request the following donations to ensure children receive all the learning resources necessary to provide them with a full Steiner Waldorf education that is the basis of our Special Character at Raphael House:

Board Donation:  This helps fund the Steiner Waldorf education in excess of the standard funded by the Government.  This donation request includes funding for additional teachers, camps, trips and drama costs, stationery, materials for art, handwork, woodwork, eurythmy, and music, and therefore varies by Class level.

Camp Donation: We will not ask parents to pledge a camp donation amount, rather we will ask
for this donation when we send out the information about the camp.

Proprietor Donation:  Funds non-classroom special character costs (including the NZ Certificate of Steiner Education) and non-integrated property costs.  The Government does not permit these costs to be funded by Attendance Dues.

Scholarship Donation:  Additional donation in excess of specific requests to assist those families in financial hardship who are unable to afford the full level of compulsory fees.
