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

  • extracurricular 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.

We try to keep any additional costs to a minimum and may be able to assist families who are having financial difficulty paying schooling costs.

Semester invoices

Semester Invoices are sent out twice a year, at the beginning of term one and the beginning of term three. 

The invoices include payments for stationery and for activities such as:

  • excursions
  • carnivals and camps
  • visiting shows and performers
  • visiting authors and storytellers 
  • mathletics 
  • gymnastics and dance lessons. 

Also included in the semester invoice is an opportunity to make a donation to our library and building funds.  These donations are tax deductible.

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.
