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.

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.

School fees

School fees are set each year after discussion with the P&C. These fees help to provide necessary equipment for your child's education.

Fees are (at present):  

  • $20.00 for 1 child
  • $30.00 for 2 children
  • $35.00 for 3 or more children.

Parents are occasionally asked to pay for craft items made by their child.  Costs vary for each craft completed and are kept to a minimum.
