Schooling costs

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

  • uniforms
  • school books and equipment
  • excursions
  • extra-curricular activities.

Voluntary school contribution

At the start of each year we may ask for a voluntary school contribution to enhance our educational and sporting programs.

We try to keep any additional costs to a minimum and may be able to assist families who are having financial difficulty paying schooling costs.

Subject contributions

We may ask you for financial contributions to cover the costs of materials used by your child in elective subjects that go beyond the minimum requirements of the curriculum. Individual arrangements can be made confidentially if you cannot pay these costs.
