In 2018/19, our school support programme gave back to almost every school in The West.
The amount we give depends on whether it’s a primary, intermediate, or secondary school - as well as their roll size. In 2018 alone, we donated more than $85,000.
These cash contributions went to towards helping with things that many schools would otherwise be unable to afford, such as scholarships, trophies, books, graduation ceremonies, stationery prizes, photos, Korowai cloaks, and even updating honours boards.
These items may seem small, but they mean a huge amount to the schools and students in our communities who benefit from them.
We’re really proud to have helped a range of community organisations to do what’s good for The West.
Here are a few local projects and initiatives that we’ve helped bring to life.
