There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for.
Costs to consider include:
school books and equipment
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.
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.
Centrelink child care benefit
Families using outside of school hours care may be eligible to claim for this child care benefit to help with these costs.
School student transport scheme
The School Student Transport Scheme provides subsidised travel to and from school for eligible students on train, bus, ferry and light rail services during school term. It also offers subsidised travel to and from school in private vehicles in areas where there is no public transport available.
