“DECD funding to schools covers the costs of staff salaries, teacher materials and the provision of school buildings or fittings.” [Part 2 -Amendment of the Education Act 1972, Section 106A – Materials and services charges for curricular activities]
All curriculum activities are funded by Materials & Services Charges. At Rose Park PS, this encompasses:
- Curriculum subject delivery and supplies
- Photocopying of materials (Paper & toner, excluding the cost of equipment)
- Stationery items
- IT Access: Internet / Hardware
Under [Section 106A of the Education Act (1972)] the Governing Council has set the Materials and Services Charges for 2019 at the ‘prescribed’ sum of $465.00. This has been approved by the Department for Education and endorsed by a poll conducted of the school community which determined that this amount is to be fully recoverable from all parents (excluding approved School Card holders). Please see our Debt Recovery Policy for more information.
The payment of fees can be made using the Qkr! app (which can be downloaded onto your smartphone), via BPOINT online, or in person at the front office at school between 8.30 and 9.30 daily.
