Sursum Foundation

Together “Our past is our Future”

The Sursum Foundation is a Charitable Trust whereby donations are sought to create a capital fund which is never spent. Assistance to students and staff of our school would only be made from interest generated funds. Donations then are a gift for life; a legacy.

We commenced assisting students and staff in 2013. Since that time we have disbursed over $100,000 in Scholarships; assistance with school groups traveling overseas and domestically; and uniform and stationery help.

During 2019 we gave the following..

  • $4000 for holiday tuition and NCEA catchup
  • $4000 for Kapa Haka and Rugby for a week long stay in Rotorua
  • $1500 Netball team Tournament week
  • $1000 Chess team trip
  • $1000 Hockey team to Invercargill
  • $7000 for Keith Hall Scholarships
  • $840 Yr13 Camp assistance

We would love more people to join us. We are a small but very committed group of Trustees. If you’re interested in joining us please contact Nick Tuialii – email
