Under the Department of Education and Training’s Parent Payments Policy, Victorian government schools are required to provide transparent information to their school community on voluntary parent/carer contributions.

Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian curriculum and we want to assure you that all contributions are voluntary. Nevertheless, the ongoing support of our families ensures that our school can offer the best possible education and support for our students. We want to thank you for all your support, whether that’s through fundraising or volunteering your time. This has made a huge difference to our school and the programs we can offer.

Within our school this support allows us to:
  • Maintain excellent buildings and grounds
  • Enhance digital learning opportunities
  • Provide quality materials to support all students
  • Faster WIFI and internet
  • Purchase equipment for both classroom and outdoor education programs
  • Student Wellbeing Support

The following documents outline the voluntary parent/carer contributions at our school:
