Costs associated with going to school
There are some costs associated with going to school that you may find it helpful to plan and budget for, such as:

  • Uniforms
  • School books and equipment
  • Subject and Elective fees
  • Excursions
  • Extra-curricular activities 

CAPA Fees
All CAPA subjects will incur an individual subject contribution. This will vary depending on the subject; however, may cover items such as consumables (e.g. paint, string, silks, paper, photocopying); costumes; props; texts and scripts (modules and software for modules); instruments and maintenance of class instruments.

In some cases external tutoring in advanced techniques such as Acrobatics and Ballet ensembles and companies will incur a separate contribution. This will cover the cost of costumes and performance requirements specifically designed for these ensembles.

We would like to stress the importance of your payment to the finances of our school. For the continued running of our CAPA programs it is important that all CAPA fees be paid for as soon as possible, and preferably by the end of Term 1.

Ensemble and Company Fees
Company and Ensemble fees will help defray the costs of ongoing maintenance and equipment, costumes and props, staging development, competition entry fees, copyright and licensing fees, workshops and casual replacement staff.

Voluntary School Contributions
Voluntary School Contributions are important in supplementing government funding. At the start of each year we ask for a voluntary school contribution to enhance our educational and sporting programs. Your support will help us to continue to provide quality teaching and learning for all students.  

Year 10 and 12 Students
May we remind all parents of Year 10 and Year 12 students that all Subject and Elective fees have to be cleared before the students sign out at the end of the year. This will include any unpaid fees from previous years. You may prefer to pay the fees in small amounts throughout the year, rather than have to find the money in November or December. Please give this your consideration.

Financial Assistance
We realise that sometimes it is difficult for families, especially with more than one student, to find the money for costs associated with going to school, but we are always willing to take part payments. Student Assistance funds are available in cases of genuine need, but funds are limited and have to also cover uniform and equipment. If you are having difficulty with payment please contact the school to discuss the issue.
