Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian Curriculum and we want to assure you that all contributions are voluntary. Nevertheless the ongoing support of our families ensures that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students. We want to thank you for all your support. Your support makes a huge difference to our school and the programs we can offer.
Whilst our school receives government funding to meet most of its staffing, maintenance, curriculum and operational costs we need to ask parents to pay a requisite charge in order to provide for your child’s stationary needs & art supplies, and to buy student resources such as library books, notebook computers, classroom readers and take home books. The School Council during its budget planning process decides on the funding it will need to continue to improve our teaching and learning resources for our students. This year the amount is $245 per child. This amount is usually paid in Term 1 but other arrangements can be made if you are in financial hardship.
