School Contributions

Department of Education regulations allow for schools to ask for voluntary school contributions. This contribution from parents is vital to allow the children access to extra facilities and learning materials.

We urge you to forward your contribution early in the year so additional learning opportunities can be presented.

  • K – 6 1 child $ 60.00
  • 2 children $120.00
  • 3 or more children Free

In addition, the school offers a number of programs which parents are expected to pay for. A grid outlining anticipated charges for the school year is given to parents in Term 4.

Please note that children‘s participation in events for which there is a charge is encouraged but not mandated. Incursions and Excursions, Year 6 Leadership Camp at the beginning of the year to Woodman Point are all additional charges. Selected Year 6 students are offered tuition in brass instruments through the School of Instrumental Music. Our P&C help financially sponsor this music program.
