Contributions and Charges
The cost of schooling, including instruction, administration and establishment and maintenance of buildings are met by government funding. The Education Act 1999 allows government school budgets to be supplemented by local fundraising and prescribed contributions and charges to further enhance the learning experiences of children.
The quality of our teaching and learning program will be maximised when each family makes its contribution to the cost of supplementing funding gained from other sources, including the State and Commonwealth Governments.
It is vital that the parent community support our aim to provide a wide range of high quality teaching and learning resources for our students.
