Accounts and Finance

As per Government policy, all students are able to access an education program that satisfies the requirements of the curriculum and is within the prescribed maximum voluntary contribution limit of $235.

The Contributions and Charges that parents/guardians pay is used by the school to fund the cost of materials and services directly used by students. The success of our programs across all Learning Areas is directly related to the equipment and resources that we can afford to incorporate into the teaching and learning opportunities we provide. Specialised programs are high cost options and attract compulsory charges.
