As part of our Literacy learning journey at Holy Family School we have identified that our school library is in need of a transformation.

Research provides compelling evidence that school libraries and staff have a positive impact on student achievement. The research into school library impact shows :

higher student performance

improved reading test scores

higher academic achievement, and

positive attitudes towards learning.

We are passionate about purchasing new and exciting reading material that can be easy accessed by purchasing improved and additional shelving.

Help us to make your donation go even further by ticking the box “Donate my tax credit via TaxGift”. The team at TaxGift will work with Givealittle and Inland Revenue to claim the available tax credit on your donation and pass it back to the school so that we can buy even more books for the library. It takes less than a minute to sign up to TaxGift and gift your donation tax credit so that your donation goes on giving. Boost your gift by over 40% by opting in when you donate!

About us

Holy Family Wanaka is a full primary (from New Entrants to Year 8) state integrated school with a special Catholic character. Our charism is "Family/Whanau" which means we promote and embrace strong family values in our teaching and learning.

Use of funds

The funds raised will be spent on purchasing exciting new books and improved additional shelving that will effectively display our books, so children can easily access these.
