School Activity Fee
The General Activity fee has been set at $90.00 and covers activities that have a direct cost to us to provide an activity or service.
- Buses to events
- Entry fees
- Visiting performers
- Attending concerts
- Paying for or subsidising external expert facilities
The Board of Trustees requests a donation for each full-time pupil. This donation enables the school to fund additional activities that extend and enrich our students’ experiences at school.
- Subsidising human resources (Librarian, ICT Technician, Teacher Aide support in classes)
- Enhanced classroom supplies i.e. (Superior art supplies, Cartridge paper versus Newsprint, Pastels versus Crayons)
- Classroom Technology (Computers, Interactive Boards, Coding Devices)
This year the donation has been set at $150.00 ($130.00 if paid before the 31st March 2021). This may be paid to the school office on enrolment, or alternatively, a request for the school donation will be mailed to you.
For any third or subsequent child the amount will be 50% of the school donation ($65.00 if paid before 31st March 2021). The school activity fee will be the same for each family member.
