Fees and Payment Options
At the commencement of 2017 we have certainly recognised and celebrated the achievements of the HSC Class of 2016, an outcome of highly motivated and committed students and staff. To ensure that our school can offer quality learning programs to all students we ask that all families pay the scheduled contributions as shown below.
General School Contributions – ($80 per year)
These provide for the student diary, first aid (bandages, ice packs, ambulance…) learning materials (textbook hire, worksheets…), equipment, library resources (books, subscription journals…), sport (equipment, knock out entries, carnivals, venues), performing arts (ensembles-music scores, musical instruments, productions-scripts…), academic competitions and the like.
Please note: General school contributions ($80) paid before the end of Term 1 receive a 10% discount for one student or 15% discount for two or more.
Technology Levy across the Curriculum - ($20 per Semester)
The use and study of computer technology is central to all subjects and fully networked facilities provide access to the internet. The above contribution provides for internet access, system maintenance, consumables (ink cartridges, paper…), software, site licensing and the purchase of peripherals for computers (printers, desk drives, scanners, digital cameras, midi interfaces/keyboards, projectors…).
