Financial contributions and assistance

Schools receive funding from the government based on the number of teacher and students, plus funding to cover minor maintanence of buildings and grounds as well as utilities. All other school costs such as books, pencils, art and craft supplies, teaching resources, library materials, sport equipment, computer software, etc. have to be paid from a Resource Levy and can be supplemented by fund raising.

One way the Department allows schools to supplement is by requesting an annual contribution from families. Our school requests a General School Contribution.

There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for.

These include:

  • uniforms

  • school books and equipment

  • excursions

  • co-curricular activities.

Voluntary school contributions

Like all NSW public schools, we can request contributions to enhance our educational and sporting programs including elective subjects. School contributions help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students. Payment is voluntary.

For more information, visit theĀ Voluntary School Contribution policy.

Financial assistance

If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.

Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.
