Finance Questions and Answers


Remind me, KingsGate School is a State-Integrated School. What does that mean?

We are similar to a state school but at the same time, uniquely different. Just over 10% of students are enrolled in state-integrated schools across New Zealand. State-integrated schools are schools with a ‘special character’. This means they may be run by a particular religious faith, or use specialist education methods, like Steiner and Montessori schools. Education in state-integrated schools is funded by the government, just like a state school. However, in most state-integrated schools, a private entity known as the ‘proprietor’, owns the school buildings and land and is responsible for ensuring the buildings meet Ministry standards. To do this, they will charge what is known as ‘attendance dues’ — to help maintain their facilities and provide resources that reflect their special character.

How much are KingsGate School's attendance dues set at then?

KingsGate School's attendance dues are currently $1950 per year. These can be paid annually, quarterly, monthly, fortnightly or weekly to suit your needs.

I see that you request a Special Character donation of $460 per year as well. Why so?

As a State-Integrated school the government do not pay for any of our Christian character resources that the children use in the classroom. Although any amount is welcome, $460 over 12 months is preferred and is simply included in your Direct Debit amount if you choose to pay.

Interesting. So who are KingsGate School's proprietor?

NZCPT are our proprietors. That's the New Zealand Christian Proprietors Trust.
