Te Aute Trust Board Attendance Dues Are Compulsory For All Students:
This is a compulsory fee approved by the Ministry of Education and paid by parents/caregivers to the Te Aute Trust Board (Proprietor for both Hukarere Girls’ College and Te Aute College). This fee assists in supporting the school’s strategic development plan with building, compliance costs and insurances. Additional charges will be made for weekend activities (Boarders) and travel mileage when using the school vehicles.
The previous terms account must be paid prior to starting back the next term.
Fees Per Term:
(Based on four terms per year and with no Allowance or Grant assistance). Fees are paid one term in advance with the weekly auto payment starting at entry time, (thus you will always be a term in advance). Boarding fees are reviewed annually and are linked to the Consumer Price Index.

Non-payment of Fees
The Proprietors / Hukarere refer all unpaid accounts to Bay Collection for collection on our behalf. There are no exceptions and this will impact on your credit rating.
Do not start your daughter if you are hoping or waiting on a Grant or Boarding Allowance to be approved or are unsure how you will pay the fees. You need to know that the Grant or Boarding Allowance has been approved or have your finances confirmed prior to starting at Hukarere.
Māpihi Pounamu / Boarding Allowance
If this grant is approved we ask for a $40.00 a week auto payment to cover things not covered by this Allowance. This is to be paid by weekly auto payment – no exceptions. This automatic payment will cover the shortfall of the Boarding Allowance.
Travel to and from School (Boarders)
This is the responsibility of parents, and tickets should be booked well in advance of holidays, please record term dates for reference. If the girls have a distance to travel, money should be made available for refreshments on the way home. Please note, Boarders will be taxied and charged if they need to be transported outside of normal travel days in the hostel. (The cost for a taxi to / from town is about $60.00 one way).
Notice of Girls Leaving / Other
When a student is withdrawn form school/hostel the Principal must be advised in writing immediately by email or phone. If this notice is not given, there will be no refund of the levy for the term the student leaves in.
Students sent home for disciplinary reasons, or are stood down / excluded / expelled from the hostel – there is no refund of fees for this period of time.
