Enterprise Trust

Albany Senior High School Enterprise Trust


To support the work of Albany Senior High School the ASHS Enterprise Trust has been established. The Trust was incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 in May 2013. It was registered as a Charitable Trust – for Education Purposes in September 2013 and has Donee Organisation Status with Inland Revenue. The students and staff of Albany Senior High School are the beneficiaries of the trust. The Enterprise Trust has two major purposes.

The trust will:

  • provide study scholarships for Yr13 students heading to tertiary study;
  • provide funding for significant impact projects, which are outside the schools funding capabilities, to encourage students to reach greater heights;
  • provide funding assistance for students and staff who attain NZ representative honours;
  • provide a study scholarship for staff – promoting life-long learning opportunities;
  • provide prizes / rewards / incentives for our students to achieve highly and be good citizens

It will also be the mechanism for encouraging past students and staff to follow the school’s future progress and help them to “stay in touch” with the school. The Trust will maintain contact with past and present students, provide regular updates about functions and events, and organise class reunions.

The Trust’s email is – let us know if you would like to donate or just to stay in touch.

We would love to see you all at our Impact Project and End of Year Celebrations where you will see the Trust making awards that will change the lives of our students and staff.

ASHS Enterprise Trust Inaugural Award

“The ASHS Enterprise Trust Phoenix Award” is made up of a financial element and is acknowledged with a named leaf on the Tree of Inspiration in the school’s reception area.

It is presented annually to a Year 13 student who goes beyond the formal designation of a leadership title. Someone who lives and breathes resilience, innovation, enterprise and contribution.

The inaugural ASHS Enterprise Trust Phoenix Award, presented in 2015 was awarded to Zac Ellett for his overall contribution to the school. Zac has worked tirelessly in the technical team. Whilst Zac was not the “student in Charge” of the tech team, in a quiet and unassuming way he stood out to the staff who worked with him by learning his craft, sharing his craft and forging a link with the performing arts department at AJHS.
