Contributions & Charges

In accordance with Department of Education policy, we ask that the following contributions are made by families by the start of the school year. It is preferable to pay these amounts when placing the Personal Items List orders online.

 

School Voluntary Contribution - $50.00 per student per year

P&C Voluntary Contribution - $50.00 per student per year

 

Money collected will be used to supplement school expenditure in the various learning areas.  The quality of the teaching and learning programs will be maximised when each family makes its contribution which supplements funding gained from other sources, including the State and Commonwealth Governments.  Families experiencing financial hardship are welcome to pay off their contributions by arrangement.

2021 Voluntary Contributions and Charges

 

Extra-Cost, Optional Activities: These are activities in which participation is voluntary, but a charge is payable if a child opts to participate. These activities may include excursions and incursions.   

 

How to Make a Payment

Parents may pay via an app called Qkr! (pronounced ‘Quicker’) which is an easy and secure way to pay. Qkr! is an app for mobile devices (both Android and Apple) which parents use to make excursion and activity payments to the school.  The information and consent forms are sent via Qkr! and then you will be able to make your payment and sign the Consent Form all in one action on your device.  Please download the QKR! app in readiness. For further instructions using the Qkr! app, see the How-to Guide below.

Alternatively, if some some reason you are unable to use the Qkr! app, payments may be directly deposited to the school’s bank account by electronic bank transfer. Bank details are below:
