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.

Term accounts 

Parents will be invoiced once a term for school related costs including excursions, textbooks, and art and craft materials. This account is emailed home with information about due dates and methods of payment.

Other money collections 

Occasionally, children will need to bring small payments to school for activities such as fundraisers and extra curricular activities. On these occasions advice will be sent home as to how money will be collected.

School contributions 

Parents are asked to contribute to the enhanced operation of the school through the payment of voluntary school fees. These are organised by the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) and collected by the school through your term account.

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.
