Students are entitled to participate in an educational program that satisfies the requirements of the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline. Principals, in consultation with their school board, and in accordance with the School Education Act 1999, the School Education Regulations 2000, determine all contributions and charges requested of parents for the education of their children.
A voluntary payment requested from parents towards the cost of materials, services and facilities used by K-10 students in the educational program.
Financial support provided by parents has always played an enabling role in the provision of resources that extend the school’s capacity to add value to students’ learning experience. Whilst contributions are voluntary 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.
Charges for all Extra Cost Optional Components
Voluntary courses and activities where an election is made by the parent or student to participate. The participation of a student in an extra cost optional component is conditional on payment of the costs of that component by the due date.
The determination of charges for extra cost optional components is to be viewed as an upper limit. Participation in these components is voluntary, but a charge is payable if the student opts to participate.
Personal Items for Student Use
Principals determine the items to be supplied by a student for the student’s personal use for the following year. The Resource Lists are submitted to the school board for discussion and approval and supplied to parents no later than two months before the beginning of the school year.
Parents are encouraged to pay the voluntary contribution amount for their child/ren at the beginning of the school year. Payments can be made in a number of ways: Direct Deposit, Eftpos, School Payment Collection Box (payment envelopes are available from the Administration Office) or through the Resource List via Ziggies Educational Supplies.
