To support the College in its efforts to help students achieve goals and realise their dreams, and to continue building a well-resourced 21st century school that serves and enhances the Ōtaki community the trust has actively sourced outside funding to complete the following projects within the college to date:
1st solar project
Te Whare Hui homework centre
Ōtaki Scholar murals
Refurbishment of the Stephen Hillas Memorial swimming pool
SS Ōtaki Commemoration
2nd solar project
Spirit of Adventure Scholarship
Free Orthodontic Treatment for one student
Coffee machine hireage (to enable students to train as baristas)
And thanks to a generous donation from Graeme and Michelle Peters the Trust has been able to provide an overhead cover for an area of concrete so it may be used in all weathers (estimated cost of $20,000).
New projects the Trust is hoping to raise funds for include:
- Improved lighting and audio in the assembly hall with an estimated cost of $53,000;
- Construct stage three of the solar project at an estimated cost of $30,000;
- Fund the purchase of an Ōtaki College events tent (complete with signage) at an estimated cost of $3,700;
- Increase the number and/or value of financial scholarships.
