School Charges and Voluntary Contributions make a huge difference to the number and quality of programs we are able to offer your children.
The Treeby Primary Steering Committee has endorsed the schedule of school charges and voluntary contributions. The schedule has been broken into sections that will allow you to calculate all the costs that you will incur throughout the following school year.
The total amount of voluntary contributions that parents and caregivers are being asked to pay is $60 per child per year, which is in accordance with the School Education Regulations 2000.
Numeracy Resources $15
Literacy Resources $15
ICT Resources $15
Physical Education Resources $5.00
Art Resources $5.00
Music Resources $5.00
The quality of our teaching and learning programs will be maximised when all families make their contribution to the cost of supplementing funding gained from other sources such as State and Commonwealth Governments.
The Charges Schedule covers the cost of visiting artists and excursions. The charges set out are a maximum amount and are provided to assist families with budgeting for possible expenses. Classroom teachers budget their excursions/incursions to within this figure. The Charges Schedule includes costs associated with the following:
- Specific learning activities offered to all students but conditional upon payment being made eg. visiting artists/groups, excursions;
- Specific learning activities offered to selected students but conditional upon payment eg. PEAC or Instrumental Music etc;
- Other activities available to all students but conditional on payment being made eg. swimming lessons, camp, photos etc.
The cost for Student Requirements (booklist) items will vary from year group to year group. The recommended list of materials will be sent home to families during Term 4 each year. The school arranges a nominated supplier; however parents/caregivers are not obliged to use this service. Students will need all items listed to effectively participate in the educational program.
