School Contributions And Charges

The Melville School Council has ratified the schedule of contributions and charges for 2017.

Contributions

The term "contribution" refers to a voluntary sum of money requested from parents to help meet the costs of materials, services and facilities provided in the delivery of the school's educational program. The Melville School Council has approved the following contributions:

Kindergarten to Year 6 $60 per child.

Money collected will be used to supplement school expenditure in the areas listed. Whilst the contribution is voluntary, where families can afford to meet the cost, it is anticipated that they will do so. The contribution may be made payable as an inclusion on the personal items list or paid at the school office before the end of term 1. If not paid on the personal items list this amount will be included on the term 1 invoice.

Charges

The term "charges" refers to costs that may be incurred in the extension of the school’s educational program.

It is expected that all students will attend all incursions and excursions which relate directly to their academic, social and emotional development.

Week 3 of each term, an invoice will be sent home to parents indicating the excursions/incursions their children will be participating in for the term. These invoices can be paid to the front office by cash, cheque, eftpos or credit card.

Personal Items

Although school funds (School Grant and parent voluntary contributions) will provide some text material, stationery and mathematics equipment, students should still provide items for their own personal use. Please check regularly to ensure that children have not used these up.

These items can be purchased from a specific supplier organised by Melville Primary School or from any other supplier.

Details can be obtained from the front office.

It is also important that ALL ITEMS ARE INDIVIDUALLY MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.
