Voluntary Contributions & Charges

The School Education Regulations 2000 requires schools to notify parents of all Contributions and Charges prior to the start of the school year.  These costs are divided into three areas: Voluntary Contributions, Charges and Other Optional Costs, Personal Use Items.

The Orange Grove Primary School Board has endorsed the following schedule of School Charges for 2024.

Voluntary Contributions

Contributions are voluntary; however, the quality of our teaching and learning programs for YOUR CHILD will be maximised when families contribute and supplement funding gained from other sources, including the State and Federal governments are met.  Orange Grove Primary School asks for the minimum payment of $45 and not the maximum of $60 and if paid by 31st March you will receive a discount of $5 bring the payment down to $40 for the year.

At Orange Grove Primary School, the Voluntary Contributions will be used to purchase books and resources used in the classrooms as detailed below:

To make payment of contributions easier, we have included the contributions on the 2024 Personal Item lists.

Charges and Other Optional Costs

The term charges refer to the provision of extra cost optional activities, which are part of an educational program and which voluntary Contributions do not cover.  All of the following are optional; however, participation is conditional to payment being made.  If no payment is received, an educational activity with a similar outcome will be provided to that student.

Personal Use items (Booklist)

The recommended list of items for personal use for your child has been distributed or can be found on website though the Campion website.
