BIKE-A-THON 2020

Supporting Traditional Catholic Education in New Zealand

 

WHAT IS
THE BIKE-A-THON?

For over 30 years, St Anthony's Primary School & St Dominic's College in Whanganui have provide traditional Catholic education.

The Bike-a-thon is our annual fundraiser in which our students and staff ride around the Whanganui Velodrome for an hour raising funds to help support their education.

As the only private Catholic school in New Zealand, limited financial support comes from the Ministry of Education, and with low cost tuition to accommodate all families, fundraising is critical to providing this education. The Bike-a-thon is one of these main fundraisers.

HOW CAN I HELP?

What can a donation help St Anthony's and St Dominic's College do?

FUND A STUDENT'S TUITION OR EXAMINATION FEES

Make Education and Success Possible for All

St Anthony's Primary School and St Dominic's College are located in a low-decile area of New Zealand, and many families, following traditional Catholic morals, have many children.

Sometimes families are unable to afford tuition or the examination fees in the upper years. Your donation can help us to cover these expenses.

PROVIDE NEW RESOURCES

From Textbooks, to Media & Sports Equipment

Many of the resources that St Anthony's and St Dominic's students use have seen many students over many years. Soccer balls and nets are showing wear. Textbooks are sometimes held together by much mending. Some clasrooms are equipped with projectors and media equipment, but not all. Your donation can help us to provide new textbooks, replace aging equipment, and purchase new needed resources.

MAINTAIN THE PROPERTY TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT

Fill in the Cracks

Thanks to a generous benefactor we have been able to build new boys' college classroom and an administrative block in in the last five years, but many of our classroom spaces are as old as the school—pushing three decades. Maintaining these facilities comes at a significant cost. Your donations can help us replace aging lights, insulate some areas, repair damage, and make our educational environment safe and a positive learning space.
