Contributions & Charges

The School Board has endorsed the schedule of contributions and charges for 2019. The schedule is broken into sections and will allow you to calculate all costs that might be incurred throughout the school year.

  1. CONTRIBUTIONS

The amount of money parents are being asked to contribute has been set within the School Education Regulations 2000 where a maximum of $60 per student can be charged.
The annual contribution requested per child is $60.00.

Money collected will be used to supplement school expenditure in the following areas:

  • ICT – Subscriptions e.g. reading eggs
