Contributions, Charges and Payments

The financial support of our parents/carers plays an important role in providing resources that extend the school’s capacity to add value to a student’s learning experience. Voluntary contributions and compulsory charges paid by parents and carers are used to purchase textbooks, materials and other resources students use in their everyday classes. 100% of these funds go directly back into your child’s education at the classroom level.


Voluntary Contributions

Our school uses voluntary contributions to provide class textbooks, photocopied materials and some materials in elective subjects.



Charges apply to some elective subjects in lower school and all senior school courses.  Payment of all charges is compulsory.


All compulsory charges are due by the end of Term 1. For families who are unable to pay the full amount of their child’s Contributions and Charges in one instalment, regular (weekly/fortnightly) payment plans are available and are easy to establish. Please contact the Finance Office on 6821 1700.
