Grants and Subsidies

Important: All children must be hapū registered to apply for any Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei kaupapa. If you have applied for grants and subsidies in the past, this does not mean you or your tamariki are registered. Please ensure the whole whānau are registered!


NCEA Rewards 2018 

The NCEA rewards is an initiative created to increase the pass rates of all Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei NCEA students. Basically, we will reward you for passing NCEA - do the mahi, get the treats is what we reckon! 

  1. Reward amount based on certificate endorsement, not course endorsement. For example, if you gain a total of 50 Level 2 Merit credits in 2018 you will be eligible for the $300 reward. Click here for more info on NCEA certificate endorsement.)
  2. We’re changing it up a bit this year and rewarding you with even more money! Get your literacy, numeracy, or UE Entrance and you’ll get a bonus! Applicable for this year of study only (e.g. if you did not gain your literacy credits in 2018 you will not be eligible for the $100 literacy bonus.
  3. We are also including Cambridge qualifications too!
