Annual Report for the year ended December 2022
Welcome to the Peria Christian Education Inc 2023 AGM. As Chairman of PCE and on behalf of your Proprietor Board, it is my pleasure to bring you this annual report for the year ended December 2022. Once again we are thankful to God for what has been achieved throughout the year.
Property development projects for 2022: The Board was pleased to be able to complete the car park drainage, sealing and the painting of parking lines. The cushioned playground area had additional drainage and rainwater soakage added and cushioning replaced, and rooms 2 and 3 received a carpet refit.
Essential Property Maintenance Package or EPMP: During the Covid pandemic, as part of it’s strategy to support the NZ economy, the Government injected additional funds into state schools through the School Investment Package. State integrated schools were fortunate to receive the equivalent through the EPMP. PCE applied for and gratefully received a grant of $50.000 to go towards the sealing and line painting of the carpark.
PCE Finances – A copy of the audited PCE financial performance report is available for viewing here. PCE recorded a surplus for 2022 of $122,016, increasing accumulated funds to $806,675. With cash in the bank of $234,398, financially PCE is well placed to continue developing and improving Matamata Christian School.
Kid on the Rock Foundation – The Kid on the Rock Foundation is a registered charitable Trust that was set up to support families and grow Christian education in and around Matamata through sponsorships, fund raising and promotion.
In 2022, through sponsorships totalling $3,746.00, 9 children from 6 families were assisted to attend Matamata Christian School. Additionally, the Foundation was able to support Matamata Christian School with a donation of $10,000.00.
Looking forward: Planning for the room 3 and 4 extensions will begin in earnest during 2023. While costs are unknown at this early stage, planning costs alone will probably exceed $65,000.00, and even with help from Mobile Mission Maintenance the building cost is likely to exceed $300,000.00.
In conclusion, we are looking forward to continuing with the development of our school learning environments, and as you can see we have a lot of work ahead. We continue to be thankful to God for His continuing provisioning of the school.
I move the adoption of this report for the year ended December 2022
