Currently, there are families in our community that are experiencing considerable stress and financial pressure from Covid-19.

We know that there will be families in our community who are under considerable financial pressure due to COVID-19 lockdowns and changes in employment. Please be assured that we are here to support all families to be able to continue their daughter’s education at Carmel. If your financial situation has changed, please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs Lorna Bryce for a confidential conversation about arrangement to manage your payments.

We also know that we have a very generous Carmel community that is always there to support others in need. We have set up a Carmel Community Assistance Donation scheme whereby we invite families and others to make voluntary contributions to help families in need.

Your contribution will allow us to further support families in our school community.

These contributions are eligible for a tax rebate. Please contact lbryce@carmel.school.nz with details of the donation so we can issue you with a receipt at the end of the Financial Year.
