Fees and payments

School fees

The school charges Materials and Services fees which are approved by Governing Council. An invoice will be issued at the start of the year.

If parents require a payment plan to pay school fees throughout the year, please contact the front office.

School fees are used to help fund printed and electronic materials relating to the educational program, stationery items, curriculum supplies and materials to enable access to the library.

When the allocation is depleted, students may be required to pay for their excess internet access and printing costs.

Government assistance for parents is available in the following areas:

  • Youth allowance: Contact Centrelink for more information.
  • School card: a state funded scheme to assist eligible families with education costs.
  • Car allowance: for parents living more than 5 kms from the school bus stop.

Further information on all the above schemes can be obtained from the school.
