Fees & Charges

The amount of voluntary contributions parents and carers are being asked to pay has been reduced to $40.00 per student in 2018 (traditionally called ‘School Fees’). A different contribution we are seeking for the first time in 2018 is a $20.00 per family payment to go towards ‘Building and Ground Improvements’. This is a single contribution per family, detailed below are some of the areas this money could go towards helping to fund.
While contributions are voluntary the quality of our teaching and learning program will be maximised when each family makes its contribution to the cost of supplementing funding gained from other sources, including State and Commonwealth Governments.
All contributions collected go directly towards enhancing your child’s education program and assist us in providing the best learning experience at Dudley Park Primary School.
Money collected is necessary to supplement school expenditure in the areas listed below.
 Photocopying Supplementary
 Classroom Activities
 Library Book Supplementary
 Health and P.E. Resource Materials
