Contributions & Charges
The cost of schooling such as instruction, administration and school buildings is met by government funding. A school’s budget can be supplemented by (for example) special grants and local fundraising. In addition, the Education Act and the School Regulations allow schools to prescribe certain charges and voluntary contributions to further enhance a student’s learning experience.
The total amount of contributions parents/caregivers are being asked to pay has been set at $45.00 per student in Kindergarten to Year 6 and if paid by 31st March 2023 you only have to pay $40.00 per student, which complies with the School Education Act.
The contributions received by the school will be used to supplement school expenditure in curriculum areas. While the contributions are voluntary, the quality of our teaching and learning program is enhanced when each family makes the valuable contribution.
