General School Contribution
This is voluntary, but is vital for ensuring a quality school has the necessary resources. Our reserves from the past have been depleted over the last few years. Your assistance in paying would be appreciated. There is a reduction of $5 for the second child and $10 for each further child.
Please consider when your child chooses an elective subject that the course fee is to cover the cost of equipment and consumables and must be paid.
All contributions / fees are paid at the Office in A Block. The cash register receipt should be kept. Class teachers, for courses where fees are necessary, will have to sight the course fee receipt and to initial it to verify in their records that payment has been made.
I.M. / I.O. - Students will receive a separate list of contributions / fees.
These may be purchased through the Mathematics Faculty and they will notify you of the appropriate arrangements. Payment is through the Office. Receipt is taken to the Maths staffroom.
Textbooks are purchased by the school for the use of students. Students must pay for any damaged or lost textbooks.
