fees are in addition to the book lists (back to school requirements) that are
issued at the end of each school year. The Student Resource Scheme

bulk purchases made by the school for each year level for items such as:
equipment needed to enhance the curriculum during the year e.g art equipment /
text books / cooking ingredients / playdough / colour paper / literacy &
numeracy projects / drama coaching etc.

is very important for all students that school debts are paid as these are
monies that our school is expecting that we have already planned or expended.
Schools receive limited funding from the government and our hard working
P&C’s. Funds are used to benefit all students. Budgets are tight and
schools account for every dollar collected and expended. School debts affect
all students as it restricts what we may do to support student learning.
