  • co-curricular activities.

Voluntary school contributions

Like all NSW public schools, we can request contributions to enhance our educational and sporting programs including elective subjects. School contributions help provide additional educational resources for the benefit of students. Payment is voluntary.

This is an amount set by the Finance Committee and various faculties to meet expenses in areas such as printing and stationery. It is also used to buy textbooks and other resources for student use.

Computer network fee

The computer network fee is used to maintain and expand the technology resources available for students. These include our computer labs, the Learning Hub and interactive whiteboards. Internet access is available for all students.

Course fees

Fees are required for courses where students need to use materials provided by the school. 

Financial assistance

If you are unable to pay school contributions because of financial hardship, you may be eligible for assistance from the school.

Our principal will ensure no student or family suffers any discrimination or embarrassment over the inability to pay school contributions.
