No. We support cash, cheque and cards at the school office. Eligible parents can use CentrePay — forms available at the office.

We normally try and use Qkr for all payments, however we need parents to pick up book packs. We have found that with Qkr available for Essential Items parents will pay at home on their phone and then forget to pick up book packs.
Additionally, there is a delay between a Qkr payment and when the school receives the notification of payment, and it can be difficult to determine whether a parent has already paid by Qkr when they’re standing at the counter.

No. All items should be labelled with the child’s name, and we ask parents to do this over the summer. That way all students can be 100% ready to start learning on Day 1 of teaching and we don’t spend valuable class time handing out and labelling book packs.

Prep and Grade 1 share pens, etc, so you just need to label their exercise books, folios and reading journals.

Grades 2-6 should have all of their items labelled as they don’t share book-pack stationery.

No, we purchase nearly 900 book packs in bulk and get significant savings as a result. The Essential Items fee covers both the book pack and a collection of other resources that are used directly in the classrooms. If you purchase your own book pack stationery you will still need to pay some of the Essential Items fee to cover the remaining items used in classrooms.

The government funds the vast majority of running the school, but DET policy provides for schools charging for some Essential classroom items. DET provides this diagram to explain the difference between government funding, Essential Items, and Voluntary Charges: Understanding Parent Payment Categories.

  • Essential Items are the parent contribution for essential learning items and other curriculum resources. You will need to pay these fees to receive your child’s book pack.
  • Voluntary Charges are non-compulsory, and are used to improve the school for all children, such as playground equipment, library books, etc.

Fees are payable when collecting book packs. If required you can use a payment plan for Essential Items.
