Financial contributions and assistance

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

Costs to consider include:

  • uniforms

  • school books and equipment

  • excursions

  • co-curricular activities.

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.

The school aims to provide a wide range of learning experiences to it's student body to maximise learning and improve learning outcomes for our students.

Quality materials and technologies in some cases can be expensive.

Subject fees are charged in courses where additional materials and equipment are used to support learning. 

These fees assist the school in covering the cost of providing and maintaining this equipment and these materials so that course outcomes can be achieved safely and students can receive the most benefit from their learning both now and into the future. 

In planning for the year the school determines academic program budgets on the basis of this fee assistance.

Students and parents must be prepared to pay for materials before selecting some courses. 

In courses where fees are not forthcoming, the school may need to review the range of activities it can delivery effectively beyond the mandatory curriculum.

The link below provides details of course fees for 2024.
