Each year, our annual Student Payment is reviewed each year by School Council.  The government provides funding directly to the school and parents are asked to compliment this funding.  This payment covers the cost of all essential education items which includes all classroom materials and supplies for Art & Technologies, as well as the MARC Van program.  Not included are excursions, camps, swimming, school photos and uniforms which are classed as optional extras. Families are notified well in advance of any upcoming expenses and payment plans can be arranged if required.    

We provide a range of options to parents to make payments as convenient as possible.  As well as cash and cheques, we offer BPAY, credit card and EFTPOS facilities.  A family statement is issued to all families on a regular basis and includes a BPAY reference.  A secured express deposit box is also available in the office foyer for parents to post payments and notices.

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 contributions. Please find on this page our parent payment arrangements for 2022”
