Financial contributions and assistance

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

Costs to consider 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.

To assist in covering the cost of the many educational opportunities, resources and programs that are on offer at our great school, each family is being asked to make a one off voluntary contribution of $30 per first child and $20 per additional child to ensure the viability of these programs and resources into the future. This payment will allow the students to access programs such as specialist sports programs including athletics and gymnastics, subscriptions to Reading Eggs and Mathletics, stationery supplies for the year, and excursion/incursion supplementation. Thank you for your anticipated prompt payment of the voluntary school contribution. Families who are experiencing hardship should contact the office for confidential advice regarding payment options.

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.
