What do tuition fees include?


Tuition fees along with government funding help to support the ongoing day to day running expenses of the school.
Extra-curricular activities (i.e. camps and elective programs such as instrumental music lessons, out-of-town excursions, and school photos) will be charged additionally.

Text Book and Resource Allowance Scheme (Years 7 – 9)


The Textbook and Resource Allowance Scheme is designed to assist parents to offset the cost of textbooks and other learning materials associated with education.  Parents do not apply for this grant, the school claims this on behalf of students, and payment comes directly to the school where it is credited to your fees in Term 2.  (In 2018 – $125.00)

Building Fund Donation (Capital Contribution)


Parents are invited to make a voluntary contribution to our School Building Fund.  The suggested amount is $100.00 per annum ($25 per term) per child.  This is to assist in the financing of our school’s planned building program and in meeting the school’s loan repayment commitments.

 

ALL CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE BUILDING FUND ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE

Levies


Activity Levy      An activity fee is charged per child per term to cover such things as swimming fees, Arts Council performances, and excursions around town, including entrance fees & bus fares.

* Cleaning & Maintenance Levy or Roster        Participating in the rosters or paying the levies is separate from any other activities that parents may volunteer to do.  We offer parents the options of doing either: one cleaning session per term and pay the maintenance levy, or two cleaning sessions per term and no levy charged, or no cleaning roster and pay both levies.

P & F Levy        This levy is collected on behalf of the St John’s P & F Association and provides resources to benefit the children.

Yearbook         Each year a professionally published full-colour yearbook is produced. One copy per family is charged on Term 3 fees.

Jacaranda e-textbooks & e-resources   In Years 7, 8 & 9, this levy is charged once at the start of the year to cover the cost of the e-textbooks and school approved bulk-purchased e-resources which replace textbooks for students.
