Contributions and Charges

The maximum amount of Contribution that can be asked for is $60 (Education Act 1999 Section 99).  The School Board has approved an amount of $60 for 2020.  

Money collected will be used in the areas listed below.  The actual costs per child are shown in the table beneath.  The quality of our teaching and learning will be maximised when each family makes its contribution to the cost of providing the range of programs at our school. 

2020 Contributions may be paid this year through your child’s 2020 Requirements List (Booklist).  You can choose to make this payment in 2020 via direct deposit to the school’s bank account (account details below), EFTPOS or cash at the school office.

CHARGES (For extra optional components)

A breakdown of estimated Charges for your child’s participation in incursions, excursions and activities has been included in the schedule attached.  Details on Charges collected in previous years have influenced our 2019 Charges schedule. 

It is most important that parents understand that the schedule is a plan of POTENTIAL Charges for activities your child could be involved in.  THERE IS NO MONEY paid up front.  The amount will be called for at the appropriate time through a note from school, as has happened previously.  Only then do you decide if your child is to participate in that activity. 

The amounts indicated in the schedule attached represent the maximum charged for activities in 2020.  These amounts cannot be increased. 

The Charges scheduled includes costs associated with:

  • Specific learning activities and available to all students, but conditional upon a payment being made eg excursions, incursions etc.
  • Specific learning activities available to selected students, but conditional upon payment being made eg PEAC, Instrumental Music etc.
  • Other activities available to selected students, but conditional upon payment being made eg Graduation Dinner etc.
