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.
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
- Classroom activities/consumables
- Physical Education resources
- Art resource material
- Technology and Enterprise resource material
- Photocopy Paper
While contributions are voluntary, the School Board requests support from all parents to supplement the funding gained from other sources including the State and Commonwealth Governments. Your contributions will assist the teaching and learning programs across the school.
- CHARGES FOR EXTRA COST OPTIONAL COMPONENTS
If charges are not paid, an alternative program will be provided for students.
Charges will be used to pay for bus transport and providers of programs i.e. QPT, Museum.
All students from Pre-Primary to Year 6 will have the opportunity to participate in Interm Swimming. Pre-Primary to Year 6 students will have Interm Swimming in Term 4.
