↑ Return to For Parents & Carers


Under the School Education Act 1999, it is a requirement for schools to outline to parents, all contributions and charges that will apply to the education of their children in the year ahead. Parent and staff representatives of the School Board, in consultation with parent groups and other staff members have met to set a schedule of contributions and charges for each year.

The voluntary contributions and charges can be broken into five sections:

  1. Voluntary Contributions
  2. Charges for extra cost optional items
  3. Items for personal use in the educational program
  4. Other fundraising costs
  5. Optional costs for non educational activities

If you have any further questions, please contact the Front Office.
