The schedule of voluntary contributions and charges is broken into two sections and will allow families to calculate all costs relating to education that they may incur throughout the school year. This is a requirement of the Education Act and is very useful in enabling families to budge for such an important area of their expenditure. The School Board considers and endorses this schedule for each year at its October meeting of the previous year.
Charges – the cost of extra activities provided e.g. excursions, swimming lessons, special class activities (to be paid as the events occur).
