Donate to our Building Fund

 

Make our future plans a reality. Your tax-deductible donation this year assists us to
upgrade our sports facilities and improve our sustainable practices.

NBCS invites members of the Northern Beaches Christian School community to contribute to the future planning and construction of learning spaces by donating to the tax-deductible NBCS Building Fund.

We are the beneficiaries of the dedication, vision, and hard work of those who have come before us. In the past six years we have refurbished the majority of our learning spaces, built a library, upgraded the playground, particularly in Primary, and are now on the cusp of finishing the STEM building, after which we will upgrade the last of our classrooms and repurpose current Science rooms for Design/Technology, Music and Drama.

In the future we are excited by the opportunity to upgrade our outdoor sports courts. There is a bigger vision to build a two-court auditorium that would seat the whole school population and expand our sporting opportunities significantly. Other upgrades will incorporate ongoing sustainability measures including increasing our solar energy capabilities and upgrading our sewage treatment plant.

Our capital works are funded from capital reserves, or if necessary, by borrowing. We can all be enormously grateful for the ongoing wise stewardship of both the past and the present NBCS Board of Directors and previous members of the school’s leadership. Their financial acumen has enabled us to ensure that our facilities are indeed world class.

Up until 2020, Federal Government funds covered almost all of the staffing costs at NBCS. This enabled parent tuition fees to be deployed to cover the remainder of our operating costs and also to our building projects.

Following well-publicised changes to the funding of independent schools, the amount of government funding to NBCS is falling, and will do so until 2029, at which point it will level off. Currently, government funding only pays for about two-thirds of NBCS staff costs. As a result, parent tuition fees, which previously funded building projects, are now needed to pay for the remaining one-third of staffing costs, as well as our operating expenses.

In order to continue improving and building world-class facilities, the school will need to rely on parent and extended community generosity. As this becomes a more pressing reality, the school is inviting those who are able, to consider contributing to the tax-deductible NBCS Building Fund – sharing in the vision of the generations who have come before to help shape the future of NBCS.
