About Bayfield School

196656_10150163351170664_2763925_nBayfield School is one of the oldest primary schools in Auckland.  In 1886 the school opened on the opposite side of Jervois Road from where it now stands.  In 1919 an old homestead was purchased over the road and the land was used for the school’s playing fields.  In 1975 the classrooms and playgrounds were reunited on the school’s current site.  The old school building remains a feature on the corner of Wharf and Jervois Roads.

188473_10150163353355664_4602841_nBayfield School is the only state non-secular primary school serving Herne Bay.  It is a small Decile 10 school and is often described as having a small country school feeling, yet only a few minutes from the city centre.  The school roll peaks at around 355 students a year.

The school has a very strong community spirit.  Parents, grandparents, friends and caregivers are closely involved with school activities and actively give support to various fundraising events such as Music on the Field.

Sponsors

We need the help of the parental community and businesses like yours to achieve our goals and ensure we have the resources required to teach and develop independent, balanced, achievers who are able to confidently take on the next stage of their school education.

INTERESTED IN BECOMING A SPONSOR?
Please contact Sacha Moore sacha@pitchblackpartners.com

Why do we need to fundraise?

As a Decile 10 school, Bayfield receives $885 less per child government funding than a Decile 1 school.  This is significant and leaves the school with a shortfall of over $300,000 per annum.  Fundraising is the way to bridge the substantial gap between the funding we receive from the government and the amount required to provide our students with the quality education they deserve.

Music on the Field is our major fundraising event for the 2019 year and one we rely on to help significantly reduce this year’s shortfall.  Fundraising enables the school to provide a library and librarian, IT equipment, and a music teacher.  These are resources that the school views as essential to the children’s education which is why the whole school community works so hard to maintain them.
