Voluntary Contributions and Charges 2020

The Department of Education’s policy on Voluntary Contributions, Charges and Fees requires schools to outline the schedule of contributions and charges for 2020.  The Campbell schedule is broken into four sections and will allow you to calculate all costs that may be incurred throughout the 2020 school year.

1          Voluntary Contributions


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

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.


Where does my $60.00 go and how does it benefit my child or children?
