Financial Support for Families
At a recent BOT meeting it was decided to support families during this time of change to a new school. The BOT has approved these measures for 2014:
1. All Year 7 and 8 students at Hornby High School in 2014 will receive a FREE basic uniform package consisting of trousers or skirt, shirt or blouse, jersey or cardigan and socks. Approximate value $200.00
2. All year 7 and 8 students will be exempt from all school fees in 2014. This includes voluntary as well as any curriculum related fees. This would typically cost $150-180 over the year.
3. All students in Years 7, 8 and 9 will be given a new HHS school jacket, value $130. This is being paid for from the Red Cross Earthquake Fund that the school has received.
We hope that this support will enable our new students to settle positively into Hornby High School.
