Helping Hand Fund

The Helping Hand fund is to help students who need assistance with the odd day-to-day school expense.

Rutherford College donates to the Helping Hand fund for our students, though we would greatly appreciate extra support from our community.

If you would like to donate to the Helping Hand fund, please use the payment methods listed on this page (noting that the payment is for the Helping Hand fund).

Many thanks.


We hold an account in our Student Management System for each student.

You will receive a statement at the beginning of the year – from which all or most of the charges can be paid.  You will also receive an updated statement at the end of each term as charges are often added during the year for trips, camps, sweatshirts etc.

Payment Methods

  • Online banking or bank deposits to School’s bank account (see below)
  • Small regular payments into the School’s bank account during the year (please visit your bank to set this up automatically). $5 per week will pay $260 by the end of the school year.
  • We can take cash, cheques and EFTPOS payments (including WINZ cards) at the Accounts Office at the School which is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: interval 11am to 11.25am and lunchtime 1.25pm to 2.05pm to accept payments.
  • For any payments made directly into our School bank account, please ensure you note the student’s name and tutor class so that we know who the payment is from.
  • The school is gradually moving to a cashless environment and families will be informed later of ways to pay online.If you have any concerns or queries  please can you email Judy: [email protected]
