Financial contributions and assistance

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

These include:

  • uniforms

  • school books and equipment

  • excursions

  • co-curricular activities.

We appreciate that educating your child can sometimes be expensive. While trying to offer the very highest quality of programs, we also aim to keep costs down to as low as possible. Each term we will endeavour to identify costs in advance, with options to pay either upfront, or in two or more payments.

Voluntary school contributions

Like all NSW public schools, we can request contributions to enhance our educational and sporting programs including elective subjects. School contributions help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students. Payment is voluntary.

For more information, visit the Voluntary School Contribution policy.

Financial assistance

If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.

Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.

Parents need to complete the payment form (PDF 362KB) for payment of Term 1 school fees. You can also check our school fees explanation (PDF 407KB) for more information.
