The HoS report:
A top Auckland secondary school is asking parents to shell out more than $1,000 when their sons return to class in two weeks’ time.
Auckland Grammar is the first state school to crack the four-figure mark for school donations, making it the country’s most expensive.
Parents are expected to pay $1,050 for their boys to attend the decile-10 school.
The $1,000 a year “donation” is a trivial cost for those attending Grammar. Zoning laws mean that you have to pay around $500,000 more to buy a property in the Grammar zone.Tags: Auckland Grammar, school zoning
