Voluntary Contributions

Voluntary Contributions are an important component of our school funding.

These contributions provide our school with additional funds to those received from the Education Directorate which allow us to enhance the educational programs and the opportunities provided to our children.

In 2018 the School Board seeks the continued support of the parent community through contributions. Contributions provided to our school allow us to enhance educational programs and the opportunities provided to our children.

As we understand the start of the school year places financial pressures on families, we encourage families to make payments via instalments throughout the school year. These payments can be made for consumable items and levies, voluntary contributions and upcoming camps for 2018. For any child in Year 5 in 2018, families may also make payments towards the 2019, Year 6 Camp. (Please refer to the payment slip attached for payment options).

Voluntary Contributions are set and approved by the School Board and cover all students at Macgregor Primary School (P – 6). These contributions go towards teaching resources which support the learning initiatives at the school and are in additions to those funds received from the Education Directorate. Our Voluntary Contributions for 2018 remain unchanged.

This cost ensures that all children have access to the consumable items they require throughout the entire school year. The school has been able to purchase items at bulk prices and also ensure parents do not have to pay GST on these goods. This year the School Board has introduced a levy for ICT and Arts and Craft supplies.
