Greerton Village School is a primary school whose reputation for providing quality education to high-needs pupils is leaving us buckling under debt.

We have been audited to ensure there has been absolutely NO mismanagement of funds. We are in this financial situation due to the funding model not fitting Greerton Village School.

As a mainstream school, we have built a reputation that cares for children with the highest needs.

A third of our 410 students need additional learning support, 27 are in the highest need category, six are legally blind and five use wheelchairs. Our school is a victim of its own success with parents moving their children into zone to get the help they need... now, nearly half of our staff are required to be teacher aides.

More about us

We have become a victim of our own success as a mainstream school in catering for students who have diverse and special needs, which has put our school in significant financial hardship due to the funding model not fitting Greerton Village School.

After our story aired on Newshub many people have asked us how they can donate to our school. Any financial help would greatly be appreciated.

You are doing such a great job. I wanted to give stationery for children in need, but thought that might be the better option, so you can use it as you need.
