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

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.
The subject contribution fee will partially cover the cost of digital learning materials used at school such as Matific, Typing Tournament, STARS/CARS, Reading Eggs, School Magazines and World Book online. The school partially covers the cost of these platforms for every student to reduce the potential financial strain on families. Each student will be individually invoiced for the subject contribution.
If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.
Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.
Education tax refund
The education tax refund lets you claim up to 50% of eligible education expenses. If you are eligible, you can get back up to $375 for each primary student and up to $750 for each secondary student. You can claim things like text books, stationery and even internet costs.
If you receive family tax benefit part A for a child at primary or secondary school, you will be eligible. For more information, call the tax office on 13 28 61.
Remember to keep receipts for all the expenses you claim.
