Hillsborough Primary School is a high decile school. Although we run a tight ship, our operational grant from the Ministry of Education does not cover all of our expenses. Some costs are covered by fundraising through our parent group, FOHPS. For other expenses, we need to look to the school community for assistance.

Is it compulsory?

No. It is a voluntary donation, though we encourage families to assist the school by making the payment if they can.
