Contributions and Charges

 

The Department of Education’s policy on Contributions, Charges and Fees requires schools to outline the schedule of contributions and charges for 2017.  The Campbell schedule is broken into four sections and will allow you to calculate all costs that may be incurred throughout the 2017 school year.

 

Contributions

Learning Area Activities $20.00
Mathematics Resource Materials $  5.00
English Resource Materials $  5.00
Science Resource Materials $  5.00
Information & Communication Technology Consumables $10.00
Learning Area Consumables $15.00
Total Contribution Per Student
$60.00

The total amount of voluntary contributions parents and carers are being asked to pay has been calculated and endorsed by the School Board and the P&C as $60 per child for the first two children in the family and $50 per subsequent child.

Money collected will be used to supplement school expenditure in the areas listed below. The actual costs per child are shown in the table beneath.  While contributions are voluntary, the quality of our teaching and learning program will be maximised when each family contributes to the cost of supplementing funding gained from other sources, including the State and Commonwealth governments.

 

Charges For Extra Cost Optional Components

A breakdown of estimated charges for your child’s participation in incursions, excursions, activities, etc. for 2017, endorsed by the School Board and the P&C, has been outlined in the schedule below.  Students will only incur costs when they are involved in a particular activity.  The amounts indicated on the schedule represent the maximum charged for scheduled activities in 2017.

In 2017 we are asking for Parents/Guardians to pay the costs of Swimming, Excursions and Incursions (outline of costs shaded below), together with their Voluntary Contribution and P&C Levy at the commencement of the school year.
