The college will request a contribution of $235 from you for your child, which will allow the college to provide the following items across all learning areas in Year 7 and Year 8. These include:
In 2021 we will also request a cost for Technology of $20 and the charge for the school diary will be $10.
The Department of Education’s Contribution, Charges and Fees Policy clearly states that it is expected that those parents who can afford to make the contribution, pay. Parents/carers who hold a concession card may be eligible for financial subsidy for the contributions, through the Secondary Assistance Scheme.
The Secondary Assistance Scheme is available to parents/guardians of secondary students, up to and including the year in which they turn 18, and only if the parent/carer is a holder of one of the following prescribed cards (not the student). If a parent does not have a card the application will not be successful.
The Secondary Assistance Scheme includes:
Application forms for the Secondary Assistance Scheme for 2021 will be available from the college in December 2020. You will be required to lodge these forms in person, as your valid concession card must be sighted and signature verified. Applications close at the end of Term 1 2021. No late applications will be accepted by the Department of Education.
These are items that your child will be required to bring to the college and may include:
You may purchase your child’s Personal Items List online through OUR nominated college supplier (Campion) or you may choose any supplier (i.e. Officeworks, Woolworths, Coles etc.). Any purchases made through Campion will result in a commission payment to the college. (Please note: The Personal Items List for your child will be sent to you by mail at the beginning of December, together with your child’s Contributions and Charges Sheet. It will also be available on our college website at this time).
