Financial contributions and assistance

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 the 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.

The voluntary school contribution is $55.00 per child or $85.00 per family. The money is used exclusively for the purchase of photocopy paper and school equipment throughout the year. All contributions will be individually receipted for tax purposes.

Collection of Money
Any money which needs to be sent to school in cash or  (eg. excursions) is paid directly to the School Office in Block 1 before 9.25am. Money is best placed in a sealed envelope with the child's name, class and the purpose of the payment written on the outside of the envelope. All EFTPOS payments can be made at the School Office before 2pm.

Student Banking
Student banking takes place on a weekly basis for those children who wish to be involved. Bank books are placed in a class bank bag on Monday mornings ready for processing. They are usually returned on the same day.
