Contributions (Payable to the School)
The total amount of contributions parents/caregivers are being asked to pay has been set at $60.00 per student which is in line with the School Education Regulations 2000.
Money collected will be used to supplement school expenditure in the curriculum learning areas. While the contributions are voluntary the quality of our teaching and learning program will be maximised when each family makes its contribution to the cost of supplementing funding gained from other sources, including the State and Commonwealth governments. Your contribution will be used to supplement school funding for the purchase of resources needed in the provision of the learning program activities.
The School Board has suggested a number of options be offered to assist parents making their contribution.
Option 1 – A single contribution of $60.00
Option 2 – Two payments, each of $30.00 made in the first week of each semester.
The School Board would like to point out the contribution per child ($60.00) equates to $1.50 per week over the course of the year.
During the year, students are asked to pay charges to be involved in particular activities; these vary with classes and year levels. These charges may include items such as – Interm swimming, excursions, incursions, Edu-Dance, interschool sport and Year 6 graduation activities.
Students will only incur costs when they are involved in a particular activity and. You will be asked to make payment for each activity as it approaches.
