A Resources Hire Scheme levy is payable by each student in the school and covers the provision of a student diary and I.D. Card, consumable items used in some practical subject areas, the provision of photocopied notes as well as the use of textbooks used in each subject area.
Renewal notices for continuing students will be issued in October/November, and payments should be made before the first week of the new school year. If the student leaves the school for employment or transfers to another school, all textbooks and equipment must be returned before any refund will be issued. The cost to join the scheme in 2014 is $160.00 per student in Years 8, 9 and 10, and $150.00 per student in Years 11 and 12, together with the government allowance. It is anticipated the government allowance will be similar to 2013. In subjects where students complete projects to take home (i.e. Senior Art and Manual Arts (Year 9-12)), a subject levy will be charged.
Payment may be made in instalments on a pre-arranged contract with the Business Services Manager, if you are not in the financial position to pay in a lump sum. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, all major credit cards, or EFTPOS. It is also possible to organise direct payments from Centrelink. Students should pay money at the Cashier’s window outside the main administration building during the following hours:
8.00am – 8.30am - Before school
11.05am – 11.45am - Morning tea
12.55pm – 1.25pm - Lunch.
Parents/caregivers may pay at any time: 8.00am – 1.30pm and 2.00pm – 3.00pm.
