Beaumaris Primary School receives strong support from families through the payment of student charges and voluntary contributions. This financial support enables our school to provide a wide range of curriculum programs, and maintain and develop facilities and services that would otherwise not be possible given the school’s limited financial resources. In order to offer great educational experiences for students, the School Council has decided on the school charges and voluntary contributions for 2018 as set out on the payment schedule.


 

Essential Education Items

 

The Essential Educational Items component covers student/class consumables.  Mathletics and Reading Eggs, which supplement our education program, but are not totally funded through Department of Education and Training.

 

 

Optional Educational Items

 

The Optional Educational Items component covers:

  •  Prep- Year 4 swimming program with Bayside Aquatics
  • Year 5 and 6 Lifesaving and water safety skills program with Bayside Aquatics.  The Year 5 and 6 swimming program reflects feedback received from parents, students and teachers. In 2018 the Year 6 swimming program has been partly funded by DET.
  • Sports levy for Year 4 to 6
  • Excursions for all year levels to cover cost of activities, entry and seat-belted transport if required.

 

Voluntary Financial Contributions

 

The voluntary contributions assist with the provision of learning technologies, art and library materials, performing arts materials, sports equipment, facilities enhancement, grounds maintenance and other much-needed resources. Voluntary contributions to the Library and Building Funds are tax deductible and all are non-refundable.

 

Fundraising

 

We are so grateful for funds raised by Parent Club, Fete Committee and BFAC.  This year voluntary contributions, donations and fundraising have been vital in enabling us to improve the learning environment for our students. These improvements include:

 

  • Ongoing maintenance of the oval, shade cloth, grounds and play equipment
  • Learning Deck
  • Garden Club projects such as the sensory garden and our new tranquil Japanese river bed garden
  • Learning centre resources, literacy, mathematics and science resources, furniture and storage
  • Purchase of additional resources to enrich our visual arts, digital technology, performing arts, physical education, sport and Japanese programs

Purchase of technology equipment, additional iPads, iPad and laptop charging stations and lease of laptops

 

Our preferred option of payment is through the Qkr App. This is a very convenient way for you to pay.  Payment instalments are also available through Qkr.

Families who do not have an immediate capacity to pay are also able to enter into alternative and confidential payment arrangements with the school.  Should you require information about financial assistance please contact our Business Manager, Catherine Lamb on 9589 2619.
