Voluntary Contributions

In this school, as with other Department of Education schools, we ask that the school voluntary contributions be paid as early as possible.

The money is used to provide your children with important equipment and materials to enrich the opportunities available to them whilst at this school.

P & C Contributions per family $30.00

Voluntary Contributions per child $40.00

For example;

One Child – $70.00 being $40.00 Voluntary Contributions + $30.00 P&C
Two Children – $110.00 being $80.00 Voluntary Contributions + $30.00 P&C
Three Children – $150.00 being $120.00 Voluntary Contributions + $30.00 P&C

Statements showing Voluntary Contributions, P & C Contributions and any payments made will be issued regularly.

Families are encouraged to pay these despite being voluntary as the funds are used by each of the classes for any required materials and equipment. Without the support of families, we are forced to use our School Grant to the detriment of other areas.

Cheques are acceptable, payable to South Padbury Primary School. However, should a cheque be dishonoured, the $35.00 fee will be passed on to the drawer.

It is preferred that payment be made in the first school term.

This enables the administrative staff to work out its budgetary arrangements for the year.

Parents who feel that they cannot meet this commitment in full are encouraged to contact the Principal or Registrar so that a mutually agreeable arrangement may be negotiated.

A receipt will be issued for school contributions and parents are asked to retain this receipt for a period of 12 months.
