Contribution and Charges Schedule
The College requests financial support from families on an annual basis. The costs of schooling are approved by the College Board and released early December for the next year. Costs are kept to a minimum to ensure maximum value and ability for students to participate in the activities.
Information Technology Charges
Technology integration is a key focus at Aveley Secondary College in our delivery of a contemporary and engaging curriculum. To ensure our students have digital literacy skills and are ready for a 21st century workforce, we have embraced multiple technologies across the curriculum and seek your support to continue providing these opportunities.
Voluntary Contributions of $235 are requested for the year. At less than $6.00 per week, this is a valuable and affordable way to support the college, allowing us to purchase more resources and equipment for your child to use in class.
Voluntary Approved Requests
Voluntary Approved Requests assist the school in replacing and purchasing resources such as Information Technology, purchasing a bus for use for excursions and events and Parents and Citizen requests.
Charges for Extra Cost Optional Components
Charges for optional activities are dependent on the student participating in the activity i.e. excursions, special programs or general school involvement.
Charges to families are calculated on a cost recovery basis and every effort is made to keep the costs to a minimum.
The maximum that could be charged is reported to families at the end of the year, in readiness for the next school year. As the activities are not confirmed at this point in time, the information is only a guide as to the activities that could occur.
Personal Items List
Personal Items (also known as Booklist) are student’s stationery and other personal items that enable students to participate in classes on a daily basis. Our provider is Ziggies Educational Supplies who can provide families with a convenient solution to buying the personal items for school.
You are able to source these items from any supplier.
If a brand is specified, please consider purchasing the particular item due to the brand’s quality and ability to complete the task. For example, an Artline Fineliner Pen, or UHU glue.
Please label all items clearly with your child’s full name.
Some Education Support student’s personal items requirements will be different and families will be advised individually. Please ensure these items are clearly labelled.
The College is providing a variety of convenient Payment Methods for families to contribute towards their child’s education. Please review our easy to use help sheet for assistance.
Payment Arrangements and Plans
Families can make arrangements with our Corporate Services Officer to pay by instalments. Please contact our office to make arrangements for monthly instalments, or term by term payments.
Additionally, BPoint can be set up to pay at any interval you require.
