Fees and contributions

School fees and an optional contribution are levied by the school to pay for a range of goods, services, specialist lessons and also to pay for most excursions, carnivals and shows in advance for the children throughout the year.

Each semester you will receive an invoice for your child/children's school expenses.  The invoice for the semester will include the cost of excursions, incursions, special program costs, etc for two terms.  The Semester 1 (Terms 1 & 2) invoice will be different to that of the Semester 2 (Terms 3 & 4) as it includes a 'Voluntary Contribution' and an annual 'Technology' and 'Resource' charge.  As the iPad program is now in place there are significant costs to the school for apps, insurance and maintenance that we didn't have before and this fee will make it possible for the school to offer new and exciting programs for the children.  It also includes an annual subscription for Mathletics.

The 'Resource' fee goes towards the cost of updating and replacing lost home readers and books from the reading sets used from K-6 and the provision of additional supplies and equipment for use in creative arts activities, science, sport and mathematics.  In other words - the 'extras'.

Please note: costs not included are for camps and special activities for which children volunteer or are selected, such as dance groups, choirs and representative sport teams.

Thank you in advance for your contributions to the school as they make an enormous difference to what we are able to provide for your children.
