Change of Bank Account

We have recently changed the Awatapu College bank account to a new ASB account. Our new account details are as follows:
Account Name: Awatapu College Board of Trustees
Account Number: 12-3211-0030502-00

To ensure a smooth transition to our new account, our Westpac account will remain open for the remainder of the year. From 1 January 2021, the Westpac account will no longer be active and any transactions will not be processed.

What this means for parents/caregivers?
If you have the College saved as a payee or have an automatic payment set up with us, please update your records to our new account details.

A reminder, when making payments to the College, please use your student's name or ID in the particulars code. It is also helpful to state what the payment is for e.g. rugby fees. 

Many families take advantage of the automatic payment system. Automatic payments can be set-up online via your online banking or contact the school office for an automatic payment authority form.

Eftpos and cash payments are still accepted at the office. Parents/caregivers can also still make credit card payments online via the Portal.

If you have any queries, please contact the school office by phoning 06 356 4817 or emailing [email protected]
