Proprietors' Donation

Proprietors' Donation is $160 per annum per family plus $185 per annum per student.

The Sacred Heart College land and buildings are owned by the Mission Colleges Lower Hutt Trust Board, the Proprietors of Sacred Heart College, a Board set up by the Mission Sisters who established the College over 100 years ago.

The Proprietors' Donation family request is used for development and upgrading of Sacred Heart College’s buildings and facilities. Over recent years the Trust Board has built the Performing Arts Centre and funded an upgrade of Euphrasie House to ensure compliance with the new Building Code.

Following on from the work done on Euphrasie, the Trust Board then reviewed Mission House to ascertain compliance with the latest Building Code.  Regrettably, this assessment determined that Mission House and the Chapel were at risk in the event of a severe earthquake, which resulted in the College Boards closing these to students and staff.

To meet the immediate teaching space requirements, six relocatables will be placed on site and a new Food Room incorporated into the Technology Block.

The Proprietors' student donation request covers the on-going financial commitments for the new Performing Arts Centre, the strengthening of Euphrasie House, Mission House, and the Chapel.

In view of the building and funding challenges facing the Trust Board, we would be extremely grateful if you are able to make this donation in full or in part.

The Proprietors' Donation qualifies for income tax rebate purposes.

The Proprietors' Donation request will be sent to Parents/Caregivers by Sacred Heart College.

Your Proprietors' Donation can be paid to the Sacred Heart College account and we will forward it to Mission Colleges Lower Hutt Trust Board.

Archdiocese of Wellington Attendance Dues

Archdiocese of Wellington
Attendance Dues 

$1,040 per student per year for 2019Invoiced from Archdiocese of Wellington

Attendance Dues will be invoiced to caregivers by the Archdiocese of Wellington at the beginning of each term.  Payment must be made directly to their bank account (refer to their invoice).

Attendance Dues are required to be paid under the terms of the Integration Act and are determined from time to time by the Catholic Education Office and approved by the Minister of Education.

Attendance Dues go into the Archdiocesan Common Fund together with Attendance Dues from other Catholic schools in the Archdiocese. Funds are used primarily to service the historical and on-going debt incurred by Catholic Schools to cover the cost of building improvements, as they form part of a collective arrangement of Catholic Schools which Sacred Heart College has been part of for many years. Attendance Dues do not contribute to the day to day operational costs of Sacred Heart College.
