Financial contributions and assistance

We appreciate parents contributing to school costs. Annual school fees are set by the Department of Education and this is communicated at the commencement of the school year. There are ongoing costs involved with schooling and these vary from grade to grade. Total costs change each year depending on the activities that have been designed for the students learning. This cost is also communicated early in the year.

As well, students have all of their school needs covered with art paper and supplies, books, pens, paper, paints, pencils, erasers, photocopying, technology, sport, music equipment, diaries and more provided. In all Stages, laptops are available to classes for technology and this is available due to the wonderful support of parent contributions. We are also support BYOD for students in Year 3 - 6.

There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for.

Costs to consider 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.

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.
