Both primary and secondary schools can request contributions to enhance the school's educational and sporting programs.
These school contributions are voluntary and payment is a matter for decision by parents. They help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students.
Schools may charge students for the purchase of materials used in particular subjects. Parents who cannot pay for elective subjects because of financial hardship may be eligible for assistance from the Student Assistance Scheme or other appropriate sources.
Principals will ensure that no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over Voluntary School Contributions.
