2020 Contribution & Charges

The Caladenia Primary School Board has endorsed the schedule of Contributions and Charges for 2020. The schedule is broken into four sections and will allow you to calculate all costs that may be incurred throughout the school year. 

The total amount of contributions parents/caregivers are being asked to pay has been set at $60.00 per student which is in line with the School Education Regulations 2000.

 Money collected will be used to supplement school expenditure in the curriculum learning areas. While the contributions are voluntary the quality of our teaching and learning program will be maximised when each family makes its contribution to the cost of supplementing funding gained from other sources, including the State and Commonwealth governments. Voluntary contributions collected are directed to the following areas:

  • Printing or copying of text materials for use in the educational program e.g. photocopy materials.
  • Printed and electronic materials which are related to the educational program and are provided for the student to borrow or keep e.g. text books, workbooks and book hire.
  • Sporting and musical equipment
  • Classroom resource materials e.g. art materials, computer resources, etc.
  • Library Books, Reading Books, Maths Equipment.
  • Craft (Kindergarten and Pre-Primary Students)

Exercise books are not included in the Personal Use Items List and will come from your voluntary contribution and school funds. It is therefore vital for the school to receive your family’s contribution. Your contribution will be used to supplement school funding for the purchase of resources needed in the provision of the learning program activities. 

Payments can be made by the following methods:

  • Direct Deposit into the school’s bank account via internet banking. Please call the school on 6258 9350 for the bank details.
  • By cash, cheque or EFTPOS to the school’s administration office.
  • Or directly to Ziggies Enterprises when you order your child’s 2020 personal items.

The School Board would like to point out the contribution per child ($60.00) equates to $1.50 per week over the course of the year.

 Please note that all contributions are used for the direct benefit of the children. Our aim is to raise our community’s contribution rate to 100% in 2020 for the benefit of all our children.
