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 theĀ Voluntary School Contribution policy.

At the start of each year, we ask for a voluntary school contribution to enhancing our educational and sporting programs. The voluntary school contribution is set in line with the NSW Department of Education policy and is approximately $35.00 per student.

We try to keep any additional costs to a minimum. Should parents experience difficulty in making the contribution, do not hesitate to contact the principal.

We always look to minimise our costs and will advise you when there are charges for a particular activity.

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.
