Each year we ask parents to make a financial contribution to their child's education. This voluntary contribution is a valuable source of funding which assists the purchase of learning materials and school resources that may not otherwise be purchased.
These resources assist us to maintain our strong commitment to providing an outstanding learning environment for your child/children.
$80 for the first child
$120 for two or more children
If you would like to make this voluntary contribution over several terms, or would like to make any contribution to our school, feel free to discuss this contribution with our Business Manager.
Voluntary Contributions Departmental Statement
"For many years, students have benefited from the additional resources provided through voluntary financial contributions from parents, carers and other citizens. These contributions have assisted the school to conduct additional programs and activities and purchase educational material.
The School Board ensures the contributions directly support the educational programs of the school. This voluntary contribution may be made in full or in part or by instalments. These contributions have been used to purchase materials for use across all KLA's as well as in the library and for information technology.
Section 27 of the Educational Act 2004 however clearly states that each contribution must be voluntary
- a child is not to be refused benefits or services because the child's parents do not make a contribution
- a child is not harassed for contributions
- any record of contribution is confidential.
Schools may offer to facilitate some specific optional items, activities and services for which parents may be required to pay if they want their child to access them. There are included in Schedule One of the Department of Education and Training's Statement on Requesting Financial Contributions from Parents, which can be found at http://www.det.act.gov.au/policies/policies.htm."
