Student Resource Scheme Policy
The Student Resource Scheme (Scheme) is designed to offset the cost to families of the provision of education resources associated with your child's education. These resources enhance your child's educational experience and assist them to fully engage with the curriculum.
The Scheme provides for the needs of all students in the specific year level together with specific goods and services consumed by your child which are related to individual subjects undertaken by your child. The Scheme provides parents with the opportunity to financially benefit from the School's bulk purchasing arrangements. The Scheme also enables teachers to differentiate the materials provided to students on a 'needs' basis.
In the case of Prep for 2019, the Scheme is $150 per student for the year. This is in the place of the traditional 'booklist'. We anticipate an increase for 2020 (*the Scheme will include registration in web-based programs and art levy – currently invoiced separately). The payment may be paid in a single payment, paid off over an agreed, negotiated period. Please see the Business Manager to make these confidential arrangements.
Parents who choose not to participate in the scheme will be responsible for providing their child with all the items that would otherwise be provided to the student by the scheme to enable their child to engage with the curriculum. As the Scheme operates for the benefit of participating families and is funded solely from participation fees, resources provided by the Scheme will not be issued to students whose parents choose not to participate in the Scheme.
