Contributions and Charges
Contributions and Charges
All Contributions and Charges benefit your child directly, being used for the purchase of classroom materials and resources. It is fair that all families contribute towards the resources used by all students. Contributions and Charges are calculated individually, according to the subjects/courses each student is studying. Individual Contributions and Charges are mailed home to parents.
The expectation is that Contributions and Charges will be paid in full OR a payment plan commenced / negotiated by the 31st March. Should you wish to discuss options please contact Ms Trinette Graf on 6401 9800.
Payments may be made in the Administration Building. Office hours are 8:00am–4:00pm, Monday – Friday. Payments by Direct Deposit and Qkr! may be made at any time. If you are only making a part payment, please indicate clearly what the payment is for (eg SMITH John, AFL, or JONES Paul, O/Rec etc).

Contributions are payments towards the cost of materials, services and facilities used by Years 7-10 students, which are used towards providing materials, resources and services directly used or consumed by students, including hire of textbooks or provision of text material (either hard copy or electronically). The Department of Education’s Contribution, Charges and Fees policy clearly states that it is expected that those who can afford to will pay the requested contribution.
Charges are compulsory and apply to options in Years 7-10. All course charges for Years 11-12 are compulsory.

P&C contributions are much appreciated as an alternative to fund-raising. The P&C is comprised of voluntary members who make a vital contribution to the College. In the past the P&C have chosen to fund such items as jumpers for our sporting teams, headsets for use in SPA productions, bus costs for reward excursions and the WACE examination fee to hold exams here at the College etc. Our P&C meet on the second Monday of the month and new members are always welcome.
