Student Absentees

 

To report your daughter's absence from school please contact the office or complete the absence form below. Absences can also be reported via our TGC app.

 

  • Students who are sick during the day, or who are injured while at school, are attended to in the Health Centre. Students who wish to visit the centre during classes must get a signed Health Centre slip from their subject teacher before leaving the class.
  • Students who require medication during the day should leave it with the nurse. If a student is too ill to return to class, her parents will be notified to make arrangements for her transport home.
  • A student may not go home when sick without permission. A student is not to phone or text her parents directly, she must go through the Health Centre and the Nurse will contact her parents.
  • Students must always, on the first day of return to College after any absence, bring a note signed by their parent, stating the reason for and date of their absence and give it to their whānau teacher or parents can ring the office to inform the school of an absence.

Donations Scheme and what it means for families

Tauranga Girls’ College have opted into the Ministry of Education's School Donations Scheme for the 2020 year.

This decision has been made in line with the school’s first emergent strategic intent of Flexible Student-centred Learning. Learning is designed to include opportunities where every student is encouraged to explore, challenge and innovate so that they may thrive now and move forward with confidence. The Board considers the reduction in costs to parents a likely contributor to increased student participation in the rich learning opportunities the school offers.

While the $150 per student offered under the Ministry’s scheme will not cover fully the cost of the opportunities provided to our students, the scheme gives the Board the opportunity to review our community funding sources and reduce the burden on families. It is the Board’s expectation that we will maintain the current learning offering to our students.

The Board acknowledges the scheme is likely to incur a financial cost to the school. Although it is impossible to quantify exactly the cost of this scheme the Board endeavours to underwrite the financial cost to enable the school to trial the scheme for the first year without impacting on the rich learning opportunities afforded to our students. Any voluntary donation that you make will of course assist us and we thank you for your commitment to our school by doing this.

The actual cost of the scheme will be able to be quantified before the decision for the 2021 year needs to be made.

Yvonne Handley,
Chair - Tauranga Girls' College Board of Trustees

 

You will note that because we have opted into the donations scheme a fees list does not exist but some costs will still need to be paid under this scheme. Some curriculum items have been clarified below. Note that extra-curricular activity costs such as sport, will still incur costs and will be charged to families.

  • Printing – all students will be credited with $3 to their printing account at no cost to the student. From the historical information we have we believe this should cover students’ printing requirements for the year, with the exception of some subject areas that have a traditionally higher print cost, students in these areas will be given an extra credit amount. Please note, it is the responsibility of the student to be efficient in the use of this balance.
  • Workbooks – where workbooks are part of the curriculum, the student will have the option to buy a write on workbook which they will keep. If the student does not wish to purchase a workbook to write in, there will be an option to receive a workbook that will be returned to the teacher at the end of the year or unit of work, not written in so they are available for other students to use.
  • Software resources – these will be provided by the school while the student is at school. If a student chooses to load and use software on their own devices for home, there will be a charge.
  • Curriculum Day trips – these will now be paid for by the school e.g. Bio trip to Maketu
  • Overnight trips – we will ask for a contribution to the cost of these trips.
  • Food – there will be no charge for food for food technology and hospitality classes.
  • Art, Textiles and Hard Materials – there will be a charge for the materials used for projects as the item is made to take home.
