Voluntary Contributions

Voluntary Contributions

Section 27 of the Education Act 2005 states that while the school board of a government school may ask parents of a child enrolled at the school to make a financial contribution to the school:

  • Each contribution is to be voluntary
  • A child at the school is not to be refused benefits or services because the child's parents/carers do not make a contribution
  • A child is not approached or harassed for contributions
  • Any records of contributions are confidential

At Gilmore Primary School all students who attend have the right and the opportunity to make curriculum choices irrespective of whether their parents choose to make a voluntary contribution.

It is government policy that all schools are to establish funds to provide financial support for students to participate in school activities and services.

Voluntary financial contributions from parents, carers and other citizens further benefit and support the wide range of educational programs and activities and the purchase of educational materials.

The Board has suggested that a voluntary financial contribution will directly support the educational programs and activities provided by Gilmore Primary School.

Voluntary contributions may be made in full, or by instalments, or in part.To assist you further we have prepared a list of priorities for you to peruse and from this you can make an informed decision about the way you would like to see your contribution used.
