    Some New Zealand private schools have claimed millions of dollars through the Government's wage subsidy - while many of them are still charging full fees to students

    Some New Zealand private schools have claimed millions of dollars through the Government's wage subsidy - while many of them are still charging full fees to students


    Schools collecting full tuition fees claim they were suffering as badly as businesses, because they had lost income from international students and boarding fees.

    A Ministry of Social Development database shows 21 private schools have claimed a total of 11.7 million dollars in wage subsidies so far.

    Most of them claimed the subsidy to cover the wages of non-teaching staff such as those in boarding houses or swimming schools, while others made larger applications which included wages for teaching staff.

    Auckland's St Cuthbert's College, Wellington's Scot's College and St Peters School in Cambridge have received the wage subsidy.
