Voluntary Contributions and Charges

The School Board at Bayswater Primary School has endorsed the Schedule of Voluntary Contributions, Charges, and Personal Items for Student Use for  2023.  The schedule will assist you to calculate all costs that may be incurred during the school year. 

School Voluntary Contributions  

In accordance with School Education Regulations 2000, schools can request up to a maximum voluntary contribution of $60.00 for each child in Years K-6.  The funds supplement the cost of materials used by students in the educational programs over a range of areas to ensure that all students benefit from the contributions.  

The 2023 School Voluntary Contribution for Kindergarten to Year 6 is $60.00 per child.   

Bayswater Primary School funding by the state and Commonwealth Government is calculated on the Student Centred Funding Model. Funding is based on a per-student allocation as well as school characteristics. Funds go towards staffing, facilities, and teaching and learning resources. Many families have asked how they may be able to provide additional support to the school to resource the school's priorities programs as identified in the School Business Plan.

You can access the 2023 Contribution and Charges schedule here.

Additional Approved Voluntary Requests

In addition to the School Voluntary Contribution, the School Board has endorsed additional voluntary requests.

The additional requests provide funding for specific areas. In 2023, these areas include technology and school priority programs.

Technology Fund ($40 per child)

This fund will assist in purchasing and maintaining computers, Ipads and purchasing digital technology curriculum resources.

School Priority Programs ($30 per child)

This contribution will assist in purchasing additional resources for school priorities such as literacy, numeracy, and student well-being.

Parents and Citizens’ Associations ($20 per child)

This will supplement the P&C fundraising efforts and enable it to support school initiatives and focus areas to meet the needs of our children.

Financial Arrangements

A range of payment options is available and may be negotiated with the school. Voluntary Contributions may be paid with the Personal Items List, or at any time throughout the year. Contributions can be paid as a single contribution, or payment plan arrangements can be made with the school to spread payments through the year.

Families experiencing financial hardship are invited to contact the Manager Corporate Services to discuss payment options.

If you have any questions or need clarification of any of the above please contact the school.
