Money collected will be used to supplement school expenditure in the curriculum Learning Areas.  While the Contributions are voluntary the quality of our teaching and learning program will be maximised when each family makes its contribution to the cost of supplementing funding gained from other sources, including the State and Commonwealth governments.  It is therefore vital for the school to receive your family’s Contributions.  Your Contribution will be used to supplement school funding for the purchase of resources needed in the provision of the learning program activities.
