Resource scheme

Student Resource Scheme 2017

  
The Student Resource Scheme is offered to families as a cost effective method of purchasing resources and textbooks and is the most economical approach to provide the necessary items needed to enable student learning.  It offers value for money when compared to purchasing these textbooks and other resources yourself and saves parents/caregivers the need to shop around for textbooks.
 
 
Student Resource Scheme charge is $250 per student
(Plus the Government Textbook Allowance which is paid directly to the school)

What the Scheme provides  

 
The Government, through Education Queensland, provides grants that are used by the school to provide services and basic materials.  Money from the Student Resource Scheme is used to provide a wider range of resources for student use, including:
 
·       textbooks for all subjects that require them;
·       printed booklets to supplement/replace textbooks in some subject areas;
·       a homework diary (Student Handbook, referred to as the Blue Book);
·       ID card;
·       a wide range of novels for English;
·       audio-visual and computer hardware and software in addition to that supplied by Education Queensland;
·       remedial teaching kits and materials;
·       student portfolios; (subsidised)
·       technology contribution;
·       additional library resources;
·       other items required to help provide an excellent education service to students, e.g. sporting equipment.
 

What the Scheme does not provide

 
The scheme does not provide the basic “consumables” required by students.  Please refer to the stationery list for items required for each year level.  Please note that the general stationery is required on the first day of school.
 

What if I do not pay the Scheme fee?

 
Should you choose not to participate in the Student Resource Scheme, you are required to complete the Student Resource Participation Agreement form, tick NO and return this form to the School office.  You will then be invoiced for all relevant subject charges and associated costs AND are required to source and purchase the textbooks and other resources listed on the 2016 Year Level Requirement list.  This is available on request at the School office.  You can then either receive your Government Allowance portion as a direct credit against your invoice or as refund.  Books and resources provided under the scheme cannot be issued to students whose parents/caregivers choose not to participate. 
 

How do I participate in the Scheme?

 
Should you choose to participate in the Student Resource Scheme, you are required to complete the Student Resource Scheme Participation Agreement Form for each of your children by ticking YES and return the form together with payment to the School office.  Your child will be issued with the resources once payment has been received.
 

Additional Charges

 
The following charges are applicable to the relevant subject area and remain payable regardless of whether you are participating in the Student Resource Scheme or not as this fee (to be confirmed) is the cost of providing this subject. Below are 2015 costs.
