2024 Curriculum Contributions

In the past Parent Payments and contributions have enabled us to provide additional resources and programs to the school community and our students. Government funding does not provide the level of funding required to continue to resource some of these programs

The funding received from Curriculum Contributions enables us to ensure all students have access to high quality Mathematics and Literacy resources. We have invested money into resourcing these areas so that students can access the necessary equipment and tools to support their learning.  As well as providing up to date and engaging resources for our Specialist Programs which have included programs and equipment for Environmental Studies, Visual & Performing Arts and Health & Physical Education, Wellbeing and our exciting new specialist program ‘Digitech” in 2024.

The Curriculum Contributions have enabled us to access digital learning apps to support Literacy and Numeracy, These funds have also supported the school in purchasing and maintaining devices like Chromebooks, iPads and laptops for use in the classroom by all students.
