Pompallier Catholic College is committed to providing your children with resources and activities which will enhance learning opportunities.
Our Board of Trustees have opted in to the Government ‘School Donation Scheme’ for the 2023 year. This initiative is designed to alleviate some costs to parents. Joining this scheme means that we will no longer request some donations from parents.
You can find out more about the scheme here.
The College is still able to request donations towards overnight camps. There will also be compulsory charges if you choose to have your child participate in optional activities such as sports teams, extra-curricular activities, or optional trips.
There is no change to the Attendance Dues portion of the account, which are compuslory and collected on behalf of the school’s Proprietor.

Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment, approved by the Minister of Education under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020, and a condition of enrolment at Pompallier Catholic College. 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 Pompallier Catholic College on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. The Attendance Dues collected by Pompallier Catholic College 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.
Attendance Dues can be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, per term, or by regular installment. Once a student commences a term, Attendance Dues will be payable for the whole term, even if that student should leave during the term.
Information on Parent / Caregiver responsibilities for the payment of Attendance Dues can be found here. Further information and/or assistance is also available from the school office (phone 09 438 3950 ext 0).
Special Catholic Character Donation:
The Catholic Special Character donation is a voluntary donation of $12.50 per term ($50.00 per annum) per student.
Special Character Donations collected on behalf of the Proprietor are permitted under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020. This donation provides the main source of funding for all services provided to Pompallier Catholic College by the Catholic Education Services Board. These donations are eligible for a taxation rebate from the Inland Revenue Department.
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.
Please note: All tuition costs apply to New Zealand Citizens and Residents only.
