The 2000 Education Act and Regulations outline the requirements regarding school costs.
These fall into three sections:
- A Voluntary Contribution towards the general education programme (to be paid at the start of the year). The amount for Greenwood Primary School for 2018 is $60 for 1 child, $90 for 2 children, $100 for 3 children, $125 for 4 children.
- Charges – the cost of extra or optional activities provided e.g. excursions, swimming lessons, special class activities (to be paid as the events occur).
- Personal Use Items – materials children use on a daily basis, e.g. pencils, rulers, glue, consumable workbooks.
