The school voluntary contributions for 2024 is $50 for the 1st and 2nd child and any child after that is free. 

Thank you in advance for supporting our school financially. We are not a highly funded school in terms of Gonski. Our FOEI (Financial Occupational Education Index) score is out of 300 and we sit at 42. This is an indicator of the funding that a school will receive based on need from factors such as low socio-economic, rural and remote, disability and Aboriginal status.  

Other expenses may include:

  • excursions
  • incursions (performance, life education etc)
  • sport

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.

Financial assistance

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.
