Explanation of Attendance Dues


  • Attendance Dues can be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, per term or by regular instalment.
  • Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment under the terms of the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975 and a condition of enrolment at Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School.
  • Attendance Dues are charged for all students who attend Catholic Schools in New Zealand.
  • Attendance Dues are used to repay loans for building works done at schools in the Auckland Diocese, property related costs including school building works, buildings insurance and costs directly associated with the administration of attendance dues.
  • Attendance Dues are collected by Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. The attendance dues collected by Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School are forwarded to Auckland Common Fund Limited, a company established by the proprietors of Catholic integrated schools in the Diocese of Auckland responsible for the collection of attendance dues.

Primary – Catholic Special Character Contribution

  • The Catholic Special Character contribution is a voluntary donation.
  • This contribution provides the main source of funding for all services provided to Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School by the Catholic Education Services Board.
  • No contributions are made by the Government for these services.
  • The Catholic Education Services Board assists schools to provide a Catholic education for your child through the preservation and enhancement of the Catholic Special Character in our schools.

Family Donation 2017

As we are in the establishment phase of developing a new school community and further resourcing needs are still to be determined, the Establishment Board of Trustees has approved that there will be no family donation requested for 2017.

Once Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School becomes fully operational, supplementary resourcing needs will be identified therefore a family donation may be requested from 2018.
