Dear Parents, Caregivers and Whanau,
Each year the Board of Trustees and the Proprietors set the fees for the following 12 months. Because Villa Maria is an integrated school, the Government only covers 60% of the College’s costs. That leaves a significant shortfall for us to meet and this is why we are so reliant on our wonderful community who faithfully pay their fees and contributions.
We are continually striving to provide the best educational facilities and opportunities for our girls within our budget. To this end, you will have seen the large capital projects taking place around the College with the new driveway and the Kia Toa building. Both projects have been planned and budgeted for many years but they will create ongoing financial commitments for the College.
While planning for our future, we are also conscious of the responsibilities we have to carefully maintain our current facilities.
We can assure you that our fees remain very comparable to other Catholic Colleges in Christchurch.
We know that Villa provides a fantastic Catholic education for your girls and that together we can achieve both educational excellence and fit-for-purpose facilities.
Mā te Atua tātou e manaaki, e tiaki
May God bless and protect us
